    I have an Xcel 976 with that so called titanuim quik dry interior that I used to dive before I went dry.
    If I wore it all day my butt wouldn't ich but my thighs and calves would.
    I would wear long slyle cotton briefs instead of a swim suit.
    I never peed in this suit (only because I think it would trap)and always soaked and rinsed it.
    Bottom line is it's salt water and anything that is harsh on the skin.
    Just another reason to dive dry

    ok, embarrassing questions about your embarrassing question...is it mainly in the 'middle part' (otherwise known as the crack of dawn)? once you're showered & dry, does the itching continue? if so, it might be something along the lines of tinea (yeast-type thing like athlete's foot or jock itch). otc lamisil cream for that, every day for a long long time (at least 2-3 weeks.)

    LOL. I hope for your sake that none of your colleagues read this forum.... :D

    .....Because some things just stick better than a rash on a baby's butt and the nickname that comes out of this will be one of them..... :)

    Brave soul.....

    I sometimes get this when I've been working all day in the heat. Temp where I work is often 100 -110 degrees. Two solutions have helped. Switching from polyester to all cotton boxers and Gold Bond Medicated Powder. Not much use in the water but after the dive it gets all tingly and feels like thousands of tiny elves gently fluffing and massaging the affected area. It also aids in the drying and relieves the itch.
