That is if you are unfortunate enough to get the dreaded Swimmers Itch.   We spent the weekend swimming at Higgins Lake, which is notorious for giving swimmers the gift of Swimmers Itch to take home as a reminder of their vacation.

  Swimmers Itch is an itchy rash that can occur after you go swimming or wading in fresh water lakes.    It is an allergic reaction to microscopic parasites that burrow in your skin.

  Although uncomfortable, swimmers itch is usually short lived,  but when your suffering from it, you kind of go crazy with itching.

  In the meantime, over the counter itch creams do help, and so does, making sure you really towel off good after swimming.
