    Try not to surf after a runoff,rinse suit after every session and wear a rashguard under your wetsuit.

    It could be an alergic reaction to sea lice.

    google "sea bather's eruption"

    there has not been enough rain lately for any run off issues. My mom had a bad reaction to sea lice this week in bethany. Gold bond powder and benadryl gel....

    yeah rubber break down is a bad thing, especially if you learn the hard way.

    If its not a rash then this stuff wont help but since its a rash type topic I'll throw this one to everyone.

    Surfed new board this weekend new wax super tacky and the back of my legs got rashed up good after 3 plus hours, well I had bought HeadHunters Rash gel and the initail burn on the rash was a suprise but was pain free the rest of the sesion about 2 hours more never wore off. Great stuff for the pits, wetsuit neck seal rash, etc. Board didnt get slippery either after having this on the back of mthighs but i did try to keep my board shorts between the wax and my legs to keep it form getting slick, but Head Hunters stuff isgood!

    My 3/2 keeps giving me an indian burn on my neck. Looks like a hickey but feels like someone is shading a tattoo on my neck.

    I use Ultra Body Glide. works great for every kind of rash. Protects the skin, doesnt hurt the wetsuit. Even works on preexisting rashes. Really helped this past weekend when I only needed boardies but forgot to wear my underarmor the first day of Igor. Ouch the first day No ouch the second day. I wear 4 way stretch boardies. I just heard about a new one. Using an ultra violet light will kill almost every kind of airborn fungie and mold. It may work on wetsuits as well.

    I'm allergic to most neoprenes. It causes pimple looking bumps pretty much everywhere along with heat rash. Tried everything to prevent it at first; clothing inside, plastic liner, lycra, dive skins.... Recently bought the limestone based neoprene.... The everywhere rash went away, but still get the heat rash on my shoulders and under my arms..... A lot better then before. Thankful i got the 3mm, even though everybody was telling me to get a 4/5.... I might try some undershirts to prevent the heat rash and take my suit off immediately to keep the sweating to a minimum.
