Some old-school boat captains are superstitious of them. Seriously.

I have been training for Manhattan this year, and my last two long training swims I have taken Maxim and protein plus a few solid munchies.
I’ve felt well fed, but last time I had a terrible, unbeareable itch in both hands that lasted an hour or more.
Today I swam 4 hours, had a bit itch in forearms that dissapeared after an hour during the swim, and as soon as I left the water, the itch on hands, sole of feet and showering I noticed rash on my upper body.
Googled and I think it may be a reaction to maltodextrin, has anyone expirienced this?
I am 5 weeks away from my swim and need to change my food intake!!!
