Allergy to Sea Salt?

Hi I am 16 years old and seem to have a problem with sea salt. Every time I eat something with sea salt my lips get really red, burn, and tingle. However, going to the beach is a much worse experience. After getting out of the water, my legs break out itch and burn for about an hour even if i wash them off in fresh water. I have been to beaches on the Atlantic and Gulf and the same thing happens. Could I be allergic to sea salt? Please help! Thanks!

Hi Anon_46695,

I am sorry to hear about your reaction to sea salt and the ocean. I have read other posts on this allergic response, yet I wish that I had some sort of treatment idea to give you when visiting the beach. Maybe you should see an allergist for more information. Best of luck to you and keep us posted if you find any forms of relief!
Best Wishes! Amelia
