She is really active otherwise, and said that this only happens after she swims. We have a pool right here in our complex and she loves swimming.
She is feeling much better this morning, but I'm concerned. Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
I worked with a girl once who developed an allergy to the pool chemicals (there's more than chlorine at play so it's hard to pinpoint the problem). She developed asthma & had some scary events at work until she had to quit.
Surviving sleep deprivation one day at a time with dd (Oct '11) & ds (Oct '08).
This has happened to me. It happened as a child. I would have difficulty breathing after swimming in some chlorinated pools. I have even broken out in hives. I went for a swim recently after a few years without swimming in a chlorinated pool. Afterwards my chest felt a bit tight, and I had a few hives... I told DH, I think he thinks I'm a bit odd. He just gave me a look and said, "Allergic to the pool?"
Ha! I knew it wasn't crazy...
My son reacts to chlorinated water. We filter all water in our house (drinking, cooking, bathing, etc.).
Taurine (it's a supplement) can help counter that.
I've heard that epsom salt baths can help too. It pulls it out of the skin (detoxes the skin).
I have asthma, and the chlorine has always caused me to get asthma attacks while swimming. It's especially bad in indoor pools/jacuzzis.
