I have balanits and I'm at a water park, but I am not sure if it is safe to go in the water since it has chlorine.

All water has CL: So if you are bathing you have already been exposed. Of course the levels are higher, so you should just go in for a minute or two to see if it bothers you and if it does, go and rinse off in the shower immediately. If you HAPPEN to have any vaseline or zinc oxide with you, you could try putting this on first; but fair warning that though it may protect you, could also leave oil spot on trunks. ...Read more

In some respects it is like inhaling smoke.Avoiding the peak sun hours can help but this is part of swimming in a chlorinated pools. ...Read more

Low dose cl to kill bacteria is typically healthier than not, but h2o analysis required to better know. ...Read more

Why is it possible to get Nargleroa Fowleri from city tap water? Doesn't chlorine kill it?

Why is it possible to get Nargleroa Fowleri from city tap water? Doesn't chlorine kill it?

Not from tap water: Many things are possible in life. The chances of catching brain-eating amoeba from tap water in the U.S. is so unlikely that the answer is "no". If the water's chlorination or disinfection became inadequate, it's possible that Naegleria could survive in that water. The level of chlorination should remain high enough all the way to one's tap, as Naegleria cysts are somewhat resistant to chlorine. ...Read more
