What do i do to protect my self from swimming pool cholorine rash that i normally get after i get out if the pool? Thank you
Either you are allergic to chlorine or, the water contains excess chlorine.
There is no specific treatment to avoid rash, except for taking a tablet of Levoceterizine 10mg, about 30 minutes BEFORE getting into the swimming pool. Or, avoid swimming pool!
You are most welcome to revert back to me for further clarifications, if any.

Biotin (B7) is a vitamin and is useful for the body. It is a co enzyme for some metabolic activities in the body. It help the body to process fats and sugars. So essential. We get it from foods. When artificially taken it may be over dose and hence bad. Take it only after medial advice. With best wishes,
