Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. If you get similar patches while going for a swim in the swimming pool, then the likely cause is the chlorine in the water. Using a chlorine filter shower will definitely help in improving the symptoms. Chlorine filter showers which use Vitamin C are quite helpful. I’ll suggest using Vitamin C tablets orally also because of its antioxidant effect.

I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
