Ive been a swimmer all of my life and never had any skin problems as a result of swimming. Over the last few months though, every time I get out of a pool or shower, my arms and legs itch uncontrollably. I've looked it up and it is called Aquagenic pruritis, but there doesn't seem to be a remedy. It doesn't seem to matter whether I take a hot/cold shower.
I am convinced that diet plays a part in this, but I can't seem to pinpoint what it is. I eat pretty strict paleo, except since I workout a lot, more potatoes, sweet potatoes, taro and white rice than most.
Supplements include cod liver oil, and a basic multi (new chapter), bcaa, whey protein powder
In the past few months, I have used tim ferriss's pagg stack, biotin, l-carnitine, cissus quadrangularis, and colostrum but use none of those now.
Has anyone experienced this? and can anyone suggest a remedy? The itching is really bad...
