Many people swim regularly without getting a cold

I just started swimming from few weeks back. every time I felt cold after swimming.
pls suggest how could I control in that?
You need to check if you are doing something wrong
Mostly keep your body well covered before and after swimming
The water should not evaporate right away but slowly
wipe your self with a new towel everytime after coming out of water
Do not swim for a long time
Also need to remove wet clothes right away after swimming
4 hours in week
2 hours Saturday
2 hours Sunday.
Also avoid letting pool water to go into nostrils
I'm following all these, what u said.
I think there are some clips available that may help
where those clips? pls
Those are called nose clips
You will get it where you get sports equipment
ENT specialists are available for Ask A specialist query only
They are not available on chat
I used head caps but nose didn't.
Try the nose clips next time
I think you are supposed to breath out under water
These clips somehow help with appropriate breathing
yes. you're right.
Do you have any question?
how about ear?
For ear you need to cover them
oh.. I got it.
It will avoid swimming ears
water should not go into ears
then before & after swimming bath advise?
After swimming yes
To remove the chlorine
walk or hot?
walm or hot water?
warm water is advisable
it is about removing chlorine since chlorine is an antiseptic and can alter your normal flora
OK.sorry I made some typo..
So it is better to remove chlorine as soon as possible
what is symptoms of chlorine?
It can cause some skin irritation
and cold like symptoms if it goes into throat
Do you have any other question?
yes. that's right. I drunk water sometimes
Well you are not supposed to
Chlorine is like taking an antibiotic for no reason
yes. but I could nor have breadth that time.
I know it happens while swimming
but you need to avoid it as much as you can
