Persons with heart disease, diabetes, low or high blood pressure, or any serious illness should not enter the hot tub without prior consultation with their doctor. Pregnant women should not use the hot tub. Persons with any skin condition are not permitted to use the tub.
Hot tub folliculitis and hot tubs.
Hot tub folliculitis is caused by a type of bacteria called Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which thrives in warm, moist areas. It can cause a rash after using a hot tub. The rash may require antibiotics to treat it. The best way to prevent hot tub folliculitis is to only use hot tubs that you know have been regularly and thoroughly treated and cleaned - ours are completely emptied and refilled for each guest and we follow BISHTA guidelines and keep records accordingly. Even with our thorough maintenance, we need to advise you of the risk. There are some precautions you can take to further reduce your risk. You should note the following also:
- Follow the guidance in the in room folder regarding 15 min time limit. Choosing to disregard this can elevate your risk.
- Avoid shaving or removing hair immediately before using a hot tub. Waxing should be done at least a day or so in advance if possible.
- Don’t sit around in a damp swimsuit. Immediately after getting out of the tub, shower and wash with soap and water.
- Clean your swimsuit thoroughly after you’ve been in a hot tub. If you don’t, you could reinfect yourself at a later date.
In keeping with regulations and for the comfort of other guests ALL accommodation at Redlands Country Lodge is completely non-smoking, guests may smoke at the designated smoking area situated at the front gate. Any guest found smoking anywhere on the premises other than the designated area WILL be asked to leave immediately and an additional cleaning charge of £50.00 will be incurred.
