Hello Bruce Beachers,

After swimming in Lake Huron many times since May, we seem to have 3 cases of swimmer's itch now at our cottage. These cases all occurred after swimming on the August 6th weekend. I'm sending out this message as a warning to watch out for symptoms and to inform you of the possible preventative measures.

The web site has lots of information and pictures, but the simplest preventative measures are to shower after swimming and towel off briskly. There are also preventative creams available.

There is now a poll that you take at the Bruce Beach web site so we can see how common swimmer's itch is at Bruce Beach.
