No: This sounds like an abrasion injury/rash caused by your pool games. This should resolve in time. You may try using topical antibiotic creams to prevent infection. Keep, it clean, rest it, and let it heal in time. Best wishes.

No: Sounds like a friction rub try bacitracin three times a day. If not better in a few days seek care. Could also be a reaction to the strong chemicals. Does not sound too serious.
