Body acne from rashguard

    Everytime I wear a rashguard, I end up breaking out on my chest and back. Obviously, it is due to the rashguard suffocating the skin and clogging pores. Does anyone else have this problem? Does anyone know of a rashguard that is made to remedy this problem??? Thanks.

    I had this problem here and there until I started ditching the rash guard immediately once class was over. Don't allow yourself to cool down while still wearing the sweaty clothing. Peel it off and clean up a little even if just with a clean towel before your pores have a chance to start closing up and trapping all that nastiness. Then put on a clean cotton shirt.

    +1 for taking it off fast.

    some more advice scrub your back and chest with something abrasive. it removes dead skin that often clogs pores. I use the thing on the pole you are suppose to use to scrub tile with.

    would you guys recommend replacing the rash guard between consecutive classes (eg. no-gi, then wrestling)?

    Well, it is called a "rashguard" and not an "acneguard", genius!

    Why did you even comment? Really? No, I thought it WAS an acne guard. You mean rash and acne aren't the same thing?

    If you have nothing to offer to the thread, then don't comment.

    If you can afford all those rashguards, it seems like it would be worth it.

    Definitely. After a no-gi class, most likely your rashguard is soaked. I change it because it's just uncomfortable.
