    I swim in a pool and have no ill effects. I moisturize a bit beforehand as there are a lot of chemicals in the water. Other women have posted that they can't do pools, but maybe their skin is split. I have no problem. No problem in the ocean either.

    I swim in a chlorinated pool twice a week and have no ill effects. I shower immediately afterwards and use emuaid as barrier before going in the water.

      jane, some women have posted that they sit in water as hot as they can tolerate with borax in it to calm the itch I think, but I can't imagine hot water helping. We are all desperate for what will work.
