I have a rash on my penis from bathing suit? I know its from my bathing suit because i can see the little circles from the netting, but my question is how long will it last?? Its only painful if i touch it, and even when i pee, im on vacation for 10 days and dont want to not be able to go in the ocean cuz of a dumb rash. HELP ME PLEASE!
Still couldnt get it up so we finally both just gave up and went our own way. 5 weeks later on 9/12 I go to a water park in a new pair of swim trunks. The mesh insert on the trunks was very tight and I noticed it began to chaff me as the day progressed. That morning there were no sores on my penis, but as the day progressed the suit chaffed more.
In fact, 9 out of 10 of these males were victims of chafing each time they wore their bathing suit. As a result, we created the most comfortable pair of men's and boy's anti-chafe swimwear. NoNetz has replaced the mesh/net brief with a super soft, anti-bacterial, anti-chafe, water resistant liner.
I used to have a problem like that when I was little. I was allergic to sea lice, and for some reason they loved me, so if I didn't take a shower right away, then i would get this rash (it would only happen on places where my bathing suit was tight, like my bikini bottom and part of my top), so this could be the problem.
Without treatment, a swimming pool rash will usually disappear on its own within seven to ten days. However, if the skin becomes infected, consult your physician for advice and treatment. According to, over-the-counter antihistamines and soothing anti-itch products such as colloidal oatmeal or menthol cream might help ease the itching.
The rash is most likely caused from his bathing suit and sand combo rubbing against his legs. My older son gets it frequently. To help prevent it - rub a good coating of thick diaper cream on his inner thighs before going to the beach. It does help. You may also want to look into a suit made of a softer fabric.

My son has the same thing, he breaks out where ever his bathing suit has been. We've determined it must be some type of polyester allergy as most bathing suits have some sort of poly in them. He has a 100% cotton suit that I got from Chez Ami, which doesn't cause the rash, or at least not as bad.
