I'm new to the club & so far have only done a couple of open water swimming sessions.
Although I'm enjoying the swimming itself, I find that the skin on my face & neck comes up in sore, red irritated blotches afterwards which stay for a day or so. Can anyone shed light on why this could be & what I can do about it - I'm presuming its some sort of reaction to the cold water.
Would a barrier cream, or vaseline help?
Thanks in advance
