Leg and ankle hurts while swimming. Is it a allergic reaction?

The only 2 times that my 4 year old has been in our swimming pool this year he immediately starts crying with his legs hurting from his ankles to his knees. He has no rash but has severe pain if you barely touch his skin. It also causes pain to cover him with any type cover. Is it possible that he is allergic to chlorine and it s making his skin sensitive & not have a rash

Hi, K.waits.
Thanks for query.
It seems that he might got stretching of leg muscles and went into the spasm giving rise to this pain.
Going for only 2 times for swimming I do not thing chlorine has any role.
if pain is severe you may give some pain reliever with muscle relaxant medicine.
Ok and bye.
