Change Out of Your Wet Bathing Suit ASAP
Similar to wet underwear, moisture in wet bathing suit bottoms is a breeding ground for yeast to grow and can also cause bacterial infections, Dr. Gupta said. "If you're out in the sun, your bathing suit will likely dry quickly and shouldn't pose too much of a problem," she noted. "But, even then, I recommend changing out of it as soon as you can." You should plan to rinse off and change into dry clothes before you head home, Dr. Gupta advised. And if you're spending an entire day at the beach or pool, consider bringing a dry bathing suit to replace your wet one with.
