nice question
chlorine use in swimming pool is mainly to prevent any infection and keep water clean
but at last it is chemical so our body react to it if we stay longer in contact with it
people with sensitive skin and eye have more problem then normal people.
in eye u feel irritation,watery discharge,redness
while hair become more dry ,rough and there is more hair fall
better to wear goggles and cap to prevent eye and hair
