Hot tub (Pseudomonas) Folliculitis
Spa pool folliculitis, also known as hot tub or pseudomonas folliculitis, is a skin condition that is caused by bacterial (pseudomonal) infection of the hair follicle. It arises hours to a few days after bathing in inadequately disinfected warm water, such as a spa pool, jacuzzi or swimming pool and may affect several exposed individuals.

The result is an eruption of scattered small red itchy or tender bumps, some of which are pustular. They mainly occur in areas that were covered by a swimming suit..

Rarely, some people with spa pool folliculitis feel unwell. They may have earache, sore throat, nausea and vomiting, headache and/or mild fever.

The bacteria responsible, Pseudomonas aeruginosa. When appropriately indicated, treatment is by the prescription antibiotic, ciprofloxin.

Also, the local hot tub maintenance company was contacted, in this case, and had the hot-tub water chemically "re-treated/disinfected" and the problem was solved.
