Lately my buddy after every dive or anytime we go freediving afterwords his hands feet and part of his legs start to peal something awful they turn red and it is really painfull. I suggested dry gloves on his drysuit and it still happens anyone have any ideas or diagnosis. Thanks

Try a dermatologist.

Any chance he’s allergic to neoprene or drysuit rubber? Rubber (usually Latex) allergies are common. I’d suggest seeing a physician.
