Re: Ocean's Salt Can Hurt?!
Or, to accurately determine wether or not it is the salt that is causing the irritation, you could swim in a river or something with lots of sand in it. Of course, you'd have to keep kicking it up because I doubt it would have waves, unless it was a lake of course. Unfortunately, I've never swam in a lake before so I wouldn't know. I was in a fresh water stream once in the mountains and it was full of rocks and moss and a huge waterfall at the end. I didn't stay in for too long though.
