I've had skin problems after going in swimming pools for years. I dont think its the most obvious, clorine because it was as bad in a brine bath (not sure if thats spelt right) I had a patch test done with 70 patches a few months ago and I reacted to cobolt. I was surprised nothing to do with pools came up. Has anyone else had problems with pools or know any information they could give me.
My 7 year old daughter seems to react funny to chlorine. When she swims a lot, she gets allergic shiners... Her eyes are sunken and they look black and blue. It's the only thing I noticed. But, the asthma and allergy specialist said that too much chlorine can affect some people more.
Swollen, burning lips after swimming in chlorinated pools
I am a swimming teacher and spend only 4 hours, at one time, in the pool each week..... and an additional 1/2 hour swimming lesson with my daughter.
I have noticed that I beak out in tiny sores on my chest, breasts and ribs, back and legs. Also, and more concerning to me , is that my lips become swollen, have a burning sensation and a metalic taste..... for about 4 - 5 days after contact with the pool. It is very painful and effects my enjoyment of food and some drinks, too hot or too cold.
There is also the dry skink and hair that I expected as a result of this profession..... that said, I am ready to resign from this work as the discomfort outweighs the 4 hours that I dedicate to teaching infants swimming.
