Swimmer’s Itch

From PLM to Lake Rep Dale Price

Dale,

Swimmer’s itch is a natural occurrence throughout water bodies all over the world. Its a life cycle of a flatworm that goes from waterfowl to snails. Unfortunately they find their way into humans where they die and can cause an irritation. You can’t do anything treatment wise, but wearing sport sunscreen that doesn’t wash off can put an extra layer the cercaria can’t penetrate. Also showering after swimming helps. Swimming in the middle of the lake also helps because the cercariae float towards shore where the wind blows in the top foot of water. Hopefully this helps.

The state of Michigan does not allow for treatment for swimmers itch.The state of Michigan does not allow for treatment for swimmers itch.
