Patient: Every time I take a shower my upper body gets covered in red rashes and small red spots. They sting as if I have been stung by a stinging nettle. How can I overcome this. I’m going on holiday soon and don’t want to be like this after going in the pool. Please help me.
Symptoms: Serious rashes and itching
Doctor: You could try having an oil massage (preferably coconut oil) before having a water contact. This would give a protective coating on your skin and make it non-reactive to water.
