Chlorine allergy rash treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Chlorine allergy rash treatment


Avatar n tn My sister gets the same rash from chlorine in pools. There is a newer pool treatment that does not contain chlorine. maybe you can find a public pool that uses it, and swim there. I do know that if she doesn't stay in too long, and showers right away, it's not too bad.
Avatar n tn I had allergy to water for more than 3 years. My symptoms are itching and redness on only my legs, even though the water touches my full body. I've went to government doctors and they told me to use oil on the legs. It was working until few days back when even the oil doesnt stop the itching. I used to use a low power allergy pill which now doesnt work either. the itchiness drives me mad and i itch my skin like im tearing them of. I've decided to use Claritin, but i dont know if they'll work.
Avatar n tn You may take Vitamin C along with the prescribed treatment. Vitamin C is a general anti-allergy supplement. Also apply calamine lotion and a mild steroid cream like dermacort on the rash. For confirming the allergens in swimming pool to which you may be allergic,pls consult an allergist and get skin testing for allergies done.These include skin ***** tests and blood tests like RAST. Hope it helps. Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.
Avatar n tn I think you will need to see a doctor for diagnosis, allergy testing if indicated, and treatment with a prescription-strength topical cortisone. Best. Dr.
Avatar m tn Most investigators believe that this condition is actually exquisite skin sensitivity to additives in the water such as chlorine but distilled water can also cause this reaction. Treatment of water urticaria includes epinephrine, antihistamines, or cortisone-like drugs. Itching can be controlled with cold packs or commercial topical agents that contain menthol, camphor, eucalyptus oil, aloe, antihistamines, or cortisone preparations.
1394098 tn?1385963734 We have well water and a water conditioner, so my water doesnt have chlorine in it. I cant use bleach because I break out in a rash if I come into contact with too much of it. I have had trouble with the chlorine in pools and hot tubs. So that isnt an option. Does any one have any other ideas. Im trying not to scratch because I think that makes things worse.
Avatar n tn Hi, Caffeine Allergy Symptoms Caffeine allergy symptoms range from a minor rash to life threatening seizures. The severity of the reaction depends on what the person is actually allergic to and to what extent a person is allergic. Some of the reactions associated with caffeine allergies include difficulty breathing, shock, tongue, and facial swelling.
Avatar f tn I am a 40y/o woman. Pretty healthy all these years. No preexisting conditions. I live in Florida. A month ago I started to suffer everyday of this weird "rash" and bumps that last for 1 hour or so and then disappear slowly first the itchiness- rash and then the bumps in 3-4 hours, faster the rash and itchiness. Then it starts to appear in other areas of my body.
Avatar n tn 3. Suggestions and recommendations that may be helpful for treatment and avoidance of rash Thank you for your assistance and God Bless you.
Avatar n tn Dr there told us it was a bromine allergy and gave him meds for that. We dumped and refilled the tub twice and changed to chlorine...but still no improvement. Next came a dermatologist who initially told him it was poison ivy and treated with topical and oral steroids. When it started to improve, he went back into the tub and broke out all over again.....dermatologist has taken a skin biopsy which came back negative and told my husband to just stay out of the tub for 2 weeks.
Avatar f tn No itch, just burning pain. Initially all the way up inside the vagina and red rash. Think brought on by chlorine in swimming pools. Steroid creams caused more burning so couldn't use.Many other non steroid creams caused similar burning reaction. Was given antihistamines, which also didn't cure it. Eventually became extremely twitched over the whole thing as knew there wasn't much wrong with me but nobody could make me better.
Avatar n tn My daughter who is now 2 gets a rash whenever her skin is exposed to cold.I started noticing it last winter, when the air indoors or outdoors is 65 degrees or cooler she gets bumps that are slightly raised and they do not seem to itch. They kind of look like welts and she doesn't seem to even know they are there.
Avatar f tn raw kale, cabbage, brocolli, beets, avocado, cilantro, garlic, onions, tomato, parsley, eggs, tea with Splenda only (lots of Splenda but no regular refined sugar), plain non-fat yoghurt, very rarely eat meat, very rarely eat fruits (due to its sugar content). This crazy rash is now spreading all over my body in different sizes, small medium and large.
176741 tn?1295237589 Your rash could be associated with an allergy/intolerance to fillers/binders in the new pills you got.
Avatar m tn The skin regions exposed to pool water containing excessive amount of chlorine may also lead to such rash. Although chlorine is a necessary element in swimming pools in order to kill bacteria but it may lead to allergic reaction to some sensitive skinned people. The best precaution is to avoid chlorinated water for a while to let the skin recover from the chlorine exposure.
Avatar n tn When my legs itch it is usually my lower legs, but my upper legs will itch too. There is never any sign of a rash or any kind of irritation on my skin - it just itches like crazy. Sometimes it feels more like a "pins and needles" feeling, like when your hand or foot falls asleep. It almost feels like every little hair on my legs are poking me.
Avatar n tn my 11 year old son had a virus on Thanksgiving 5 days later he started itching from head to toe no rash no hives nothing. we started him on benadryl and calamine lotiong, not relief so the Doctor gave him allegra and cortisone, no relief. Then the dermatologist gave him a shot of kenalog, and prescription cortisone. still no relief after two emergency room visits they gave him hydroxine and blood workups for kidney, liver, and thyroid came back normal.
Avatar f tn I remember a news story a while back about some water treatment facilities switching to chlorine alternatives to treat water. Does she have the same reaction if she touches distilled or purified (NOT just filtered) water?
Avatar m tn I had to stop Incevek at 10 weeks due to severe rash (the MD made me stop it, and I was happy to do so). Starting around 8 weeks into the treatment I developed severe itching, just like what many people have described on this forum. "Like lying on fiberglass" "like sleeping with ants".
Avatar f tn , ive learned to keep a small blanket with me at all times and usually within 10 minutes of wrapping myself with it the rash disappears. ok but my biggest problem with this dumb rash is EXERCISING!!
1325093 tn?1302634436 You may take Vitamin C along with the prescribed treatment. Vitamin C is a general anti-allergy supplement. Also apply calamine lotion and a mild steroid cream like dermacort on the rash. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar f tn however, there are also maximum limits regarding the levels of chlorine in municipal water supplies (I'm a licensed water treatment operator), so there can't be enough chlorine to kill the bacteria in your stomach; if you truly believe the chlorine levels are too high, you should call the supplier and have them send someone to your house to check the residual.
Avatar f tn she has not ran a fever at all. That's why I assumed it was an allergy... atleast that is what my mom has been telling me as well. When she sleeps she sleeps soundly... her nose is snotty sounding when she is awake and active, but when she sleeps you can't tell it's runny. I don't know! I was told by my Pedi that babies her age do not get strep throat, or other major illnesses.
Avatar n tn My doctor too wont do an allergy test as he is convinced it's a sun allergy and apparently that cant be tested. Please let me know what your doctors say as this reaction is affecting my quality of life.
Avatar n tn I thought I had finally diagnosed my water allergy with aquagenic pruritus, but then I realized a rash or hives are not a symptom for them. However, the persistent itching after water exposure is so I think that many of their ideas may be of help. Yahoo has an extensive Group with that name. Short, medical UVB treatment is high on their treatment recs, which with my pale skin the one time that my rash seemed to go away was when I lived in Bali for 5 weeks and I let my skin get tan.
Avatar m tn The treatment for both of these is different and at least in the case of fungal infection should be done by a doctor only. However, since the diagnosis is not certain as of now, it is best that you approach your dermatologist and take proper treatment. You may use emollients and moisturizers coupled with anti-allergics to help you.
Avatar n tn I have no hangovers just this rash. I drink bud lite,thinking it maybe allergy to that. I am going to start experimenting with different beer and see what happen.I may just be allergic to acohol. I crave beer they say you are always allergic to the food you crave the most whether milk,chocolate.yeast,etc.
Avatar n tn Also the floors of the showers in swimming pools are usually washed with a mix of pure chlorine liquid and water - if floors not rinsed well the chlorine lingers in the atmosphere until completely vaporized. Does this feel strange when you also take a shower at home? If not it could also be a nervous issue in the sense that when you swim you are irritating some nerves - test and see if swimming a different stroke would aggravate the feeling. One stroke a day. Good luck.
Avatar m tn I put some Neosporin on the area, but within a few days the area hadn't gotten better, the redness had spread. I wasn't in any pain, nor did the rash itch or fester. The only thing worth noting was that there seemed to be whiteness around the affected hairs, like dry skin which peeled a bit. With the infection seeming to spread, I had a mild panic attack and decided to go to urgent care (it was a Saturday).
