Can having too much chlorine in a pool negatively affect swimmers?
I swim 3 hours a day on my highschool team, and we’ve all been complaining about the pool’s chemicals. During practice, our mouths are dry, our tongues burn, and the insides of our nostrils feel like they’re on fire. Our coach said that the maintenance people told him they fixed it, but it has been getting considerably worse. The hair on our arms seems to be dissolving, and most girls notice that their eyebrows are considerably shorter than when they started the season. I just want to know if pool chlorine has a negative effect on our bodies.
