I bought a Cressi vetsuit with metallite inside. The first time i tried the suit i got some itching thigns on my skin. Yesterday i was trying the suit on for the second time and i got the samt itching result.
Are the suit treated with some stuff from factory that i im allergic to? I´m going to wash the suit with soap to see if this will solve the problem.
If you have had the same problem please contact me.

Yeah, I have a different suit but the same reaction.

I found that using oil (e.g. baby oil) instead of cream or soap helps reduce the itch.

My problem was that i didn´t use any oil or soap att all...i got the itching anyway...
