Customer Question

Hello! After I got into a public jacuzzi I developed a lot of rash from my neck down but now it looks like blotches and macules. I thought it was an allergic reaction but it has been weeks and still have this on my body. So it looks more like a fungal infection. What is it?

It is mot likely hot tub folliculitis

this is due to a pseudomonas bacterial infection

you need oral antibiotics to help it
