Seabather's Eruption? Does A Full Body Rash Guard Help?
Does anyone wear a full body rash guard or 3mm wetsuit as protection against seabather's eruption (often misnamed sea lice)? I'm hearing it can be a big problem in the Caribbean and Florida.
Most advise against wearing rash guards, t shirts and 1 piece swimsuits because they get trapped inside, then sting.
I've heard 2 different things consistently: wear as small a bathing suit as possible or no bathing suit (yeah...neither is happening - don't have the bod for that!) OR wear a form fitting full wetsuit that seals well at the wrists and ankles and use Safe Sea on any other exposed areas.
Does anyone have any personal experience with this?
I'm wondering if it makes any difference in the sealing or protection if it's just a rash guard for warmer weather or if it's better to wear a 3mm wetsuit?
Thank you for any information.
