Ok, Ive had pools my whole life... chlorine pools and I know how to deal with problems with those.
But I joined today because my problem is with a friends pool!
I am in Phoenix, AZ and have a friend with a salt water pool that they are learning how to take care and doing really well.
Everytime I swim there I end up with dozens and dozens of bits on my ankles and lower legs. Sometimes clusters of them,
and they WONT HEAL! I finally had them healing after avoiding the pool for 6 weeks.. and went in yesterday and the areas that have marks
from almost healed bites are irritated again and surrounds by tons of new bits as well as bites everywhere.
My friend rarely gets bites and neither does her family or my husband there.
I have not seen these biting bugs... ever and sometimes it takes a couple days for the bites to appear and I want to claw my legs to death!~
I must be itching at night because the next morning it looks like a full blown rash.
Question... what the heck is biting me and why only me?
How can I avoid getting bit without just giving up on swimming over there?
I joked the other day about something laying eggs in my leg because the marks wouldnt heal and would actually get raised up after a few weeks... I pulled the top off and put antibiotics in the area and it finally was healing until yesterday.
