AN EMAIL I SENT TO LMSP REP ON MONDAY JUNE 30, 2014:
Dear Lake Murray State Park Representative,
We camped at LMSP last weekend at Ski Jump campsite and I went into the lake on Saturday. Yesterday I noticed red pimples on my skin, on both areas that were covered and not covered when I was in the water. The pimples were itchy. I googled "lake rash" and "swimmer's itch" came up. The images for swimmer's itch looked like mine, but I didn't have so many pimples.
I just wanted to report this in case other guests ask. I never had or heard of this condition before, and had no idea what caused it, how long it would last, or how I could treat it. Once I realized that it was swimmer's itch, I found a lot of information online about it. Thanks, and have a great week.
