As someone who's had LS my whole 62 year life (but wasn't diagnosed till a year ago) and loves to swim in our small clear Ontario lakes in summer, I'm now wondering if swimming is so good. Maybe someone with microbiolgy or wound knowledge could contribute here.
For many years I've been careful not to sit around in a wet bathing suit, but that's really a yeast infection strategy. I'm concerned about the little (smaller now with good treatemnt) tear in my perineum that's there 2/3 of the time. Not really that it would become infected, but somehow for the first time I'm having second thoughts about what sorts of microbes might be in our nice clear lakes that would be bad.
Really, I hope someone will tell me I'm wrong and say "Go jump in the lake!"
