Hi, I'm new here and suffering chronic BV. just googled ocean swim and BV because while living in HI and swimming a lot there never had it. I believe that somehow in HI I had very few if no chronic conditions. My son has asthma and never experienced it there either. Also no psoriasis. Thanks for sharing that experience. BV is very troubling and I have been suffering for past 3 years trying hydrogen peroxide and antibiotics!! Keeps returning. I am not near ocean now but ready to relocate if I could just for relief!!! Keeping the faith!!
