yup swimming in the pool with chlorine can aggravate or trigger your eczema. Chlorine distroy your natural protective barrier of the skin and makes your skin even dryer, which you also might experienced. So be sure to shower immediately after u get out of the pool and moisturize your skin when your skin is still moist.
