Hot Tubs Are Nasty
“The average bather has about a tenth of a gram of feces in his gluteal fold, which is a nice way of saying butt crack,” says Charles Gerba, a professor of microbiology and environmental studies. “That means with five people, you have half a gram of poop in the hot tub.”
Girls Gone Germy
One germ often found in these conditions is Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which can result in an infection called Pseudomonas folliculitis, or “hot tub rash”. Pseudomonas folliculitis is characterised by itching and spots that develop into rash, as well as pus-filled blisters around hair follicles, according to the CDC (Center for Disease Control).
Another more serious condition to be aware of is the potentially fatal Legionnaires’ disease, a type of pneumonia caused by a germ called Legionella, which is found in warm water and can be breathed in from the steam of a contaminated hot tub.
