skin feels like a sun burn

Spent yesterday at an indoor waterpark. Woke up with my skin feeling like it has ben sun burned, but it is not red at all and there is no rash; however, it is extremely sensitive to clothing/touching. It is only on my trunk (where my bathing suit was touching). Obviously this is some kind of reaction to the chlorine. It is worth noting that I am the only one in the family having this problem.

The dye or rubber from your bathing suit may have had a reaction from the chlorine or from being in the sun.

Try a cool shower and then lathering yourself with 1% hydrocortisone ointment (the greasy stuff) and putting on old pajamas. This will cool and hydrate your skin.

I hope the waterpark was fun
