Sea lice can not live outside of the water, however they cause human skin to break out with itchy rashes that have bumps and welts. The organisms tend to get trapped between swimmers' bathing suits and skin where friction can cause their cells to "fire", or sting.
In some people, the rash may be accompanied by symptoms of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache and muscle spasms, and they may have trouble sleeping.

Treatment typically includes antihistamine and medications to lessen the itching.
If you're taking a dip in the ocean, remove your T-shirt before going swimming.

The condition - also known as seabather's eruption - is common at the beginning of the summer, according to Florida's Poison Control Centers. Those who contract the rash or come in contact with the sea lice should be sure to wash their bathing suit and dry it with high heat to make sure there are no leftover sea lice.
