We were at a cottage on Georgian Bay for a couple days. That's not where I caught the itch, but it's where I got some relief from it. I found that swimming in really cold water for as long as I could stand really helped. The same thing seems to go for cold tapwater, just leave the affected body part in as cold of water as you can stand for as long as you can take it, and this seems to work for a good length of time. Good luck!
