Hi
scuba diving  Rash in diving might be due to many causes like contact dermatitis , eczema , candidiasis, hookworm infestations ,miliaria – due to climate , eruptions due to aqutic inhabitat,  coral dermatitis – which needs to be evaluated by the dermatologist at the earliest to avoid complications … allergic condition would be fine with a course of steroids and anti fungals ( local application ) for fungal infection  under supervision
