Surf / Board Rash
Water sports athletes often complain of skin reactions to neoprene, believing it’s an allergic reaction, and whilst this may be the case for some, the most likely cause of your rash is all thanks to the salt water and sand particles that get trapped between your skin and the under-surface of your wetsuit. The repetitive movements cause friction which aggravates the skin surface causing what is commonly known as neoprene rash.
