sea salt skin irritation
Hi all. Anyboby has any tips to avoid sea salt irritation in armpits as a result of stroking for too long? Any specials oils?

The only thing that I can think of is to slather your armpits with Aquaphor or Vaseline before swimming.

If you’re using an underarm deodorant or anti-perspirant, you might NOT want to apply before swimming. There might be some kind of negative reaction between salt water and the underarm deodorant / anti-perspirant.

Do you have the same armpit irritation when swimming in a chlorinated swimming pool?
