Judges critics, rude or just meant as a guideline?

Did my 2nd Bikini competition recently and had a bad experience. Fact is, I was, or rather my suit was not accepted at my first show for being too tiny. I managed to borrow another so I was OK. The whole thing was just BS because other girls were wearing just as tiny suits!. At the "after party"...

I have a question about tinea versicolor? I know it can be from over-sweating, lack of good air flow within your clothing; causing an overgrowth of yeast, which I'm told around 90% of the population has. Interesting to say the least. I've also read this is a common thing to occur with people that...
