Salt Rash Problems for Divers

Salt rash, also known a neck seal rash, is a common problem for scuba divers. What starts off as just a minor irritation can soon develop into an unsightly red sore skin rash around your neck — it is not surprising that it is often called Hangman’s Neck.

Neck seal rash results from salt water seeping into your dry suit’s neck seal. The combination of evaporating sea water, the salt residue left behind and the latex component of your dry suit can irritate the delicate skin of your neck leaving you chaffed and sore. Soon, if left untreated, this diver’s rash can become so severe that it will completely spoil the enjoyment you derive from scuba diving. Not only will you find it uncomfortable to wear your dry suit, but the damage inflicted on your skin can persist and cause on-going problems in your normal, everyday activities.

Since Derma Shield remains bonded to your skin for up to 5 hours, despite constant contact with water, one application will provide protection for the duration of your dive. In fact, since Derma Shield’s protective layer is only lost as your skin sheds naturally throughout the day, one 500ml can will last the average person 15 months or more.

In severe cases, if not treated, the salt rash can lead to raw, brittle skin. Brittle skin will not stretch as nature intended, instead it will start to split and crack, which may lead to a very painful and embarrassing problem. In addition, raw split skin is susceptible to infection.
