Hives: You may be developing hives, which can also occur after swimming, i suggest taking a short duration shower and not using very hot water while showering. You can also take an antihistamine before showering to lessen your symptoms. If the rash persists, you may need an allergist's opinion for proper diagnosis and treatment.
