Itchy skin is one of the common irritants around swimming pools, especially ones with high chlorine. Chlorine is an important part of pool water chemistry, particularly in killing bacteria. It is a strong chemical agent that can irritate and dehydrate your skin if you are not careful.
Itchy skin can improve with time, it may affect people with inflammatory skin conditions such as psoriasis or eczema. High levels of chlorine can also make your eyes itchy and red. Not everyone who sits in a chlorinated pool or hot tub can develop itches or rashes.
Symptoms can develop immediately after getting out of the pool or hot tub or even after a few days.
