I searched in Amazon under "lotion before swimming" and they had some samples there of lotions to use BEFORE you swim. Here is an example: www.amazon.com/DermaSwim-Pro
-Ounce-Pre
-Swimming-Lotion/dp/B001LEYE
R4/ref
=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=15073289
07
&sr=8-1&keywords=pre+swimming+lotion


Then, like everyone is saying, rinse off right away. IF you can't take a shower right away, there are other lotions I found searching that are for AFTER swimming. You could put that on until you take a shower.

Please let us know what worked. This is an important subject. emoticon

Is there a fresh-water pool in your area?

Hmm. I'm kinda surprised that this isn't some kind of issue that I also have, since I usually have super sensitive skin. I do make sure to take a shower & throw our swimsuits right in the washing machine, as soon as we get home, tho. There is a poolside shower that I partially rinse off with, as soon as getting out of the pool. (Chlorine wreaks havoc on elastic, which is why I have no qualms about washing the suits so often.)

Sorry for the problem your having! emoticon emoticon emoticon I always shower after getting out of the pool. I know everybody is different and reacts differently. I wish you luck with this issue! I understand how frustrating this can be! emoticon emoticon

Do you rinse off immediately after getting out of the pool? Our skin does change as we get older. Sounds like you have tried a few of the normal stuff. When I get itchy, I use the Curel anti itch shower gel---not sure it this will help you. You might have to see a doctor to get a prescription lotion. Are you diabetic? That could be part of the issue.

I am having real issues with chlorine rash and I'm having to curtail my pool time. NOT GOOD! I have tried Swimspray (chlorine removal spray), but it's not working, at least not 100%; using Cetaphil cleanser to cleanse and condition at recommendation from my water yoga instructor; and using Body Glide on the areas where the rash is worst, which seems to be helping the most. If I miss a small area on my arms, I have a new lesion within 48 hours! This is frustrating and demoralizing.

I can't help but wonder if there is something I can do to strengthen my skin so it can resist the chlorine better, but I don't know what it is. I used to be in the water all the time when I was young and never had an issue. Is this an age thing?

Any suggestions appreciated!
