Hello,
I can confirm the exact cause of your symptoms only after a complete evaluation. It is possible that you have developed allergy or infection due to chemical disinfectants being used in the swimming pool. In swimmer's itch there are red and raised bumps or even blisters on the skin. Parasites in infected water cause swimmer's itch. This condition usually resolves itself after about one week. Another possibility is folliculitis since bacteria that thrive in warm water cause folliculitis.Take an antihistamine like hydroxyzine if there is itching. Application of calamine lotion may provide soothing effect. If the symptoms are severe or persistent see a dermatologist. Keep me posted.
Best luck and take care!
