Rash on back, necks, arms, itchy, pimples on right leg. Undergone hernia surgery. What could be this?

I had hernia surgery a little over 2 weeks ago. I have been fine. 2 days ago I got into the pool with my 6 year old and got a rash on back, neck, arms. Very itchy. I haven't taken the pain meds in over a week. I feel feverish but no fever. I do have pimples on my right leg. I don't know if the rash was because of the sun or maybe something else

Thanks for the query.
Skin rash after swimming is a manifestation of pseudomnas infection.
It is commonly called as swimming pool rash.

Please dont worry this rash will disappear on treatment with antibiotics.
Meet a dermatologist and get a prescription.
