Hi - May 2015
Swimming in ala moana beach park for 45 minutes.
Showered when got home.
Got a skin infection on arms mostly.
Dermatologist said it was folliculitis or a bacterial skin infection.

Gross - I definitely smelled sewage at the end of my swim.
(told Surfrider Oahu folks about it) - also reported it to the Dept. of Health...
