Allergic to chlorine. Levels very high last night,  still feeling rxn (skin burning/itchy,headache). can I go in a pool today or will It get worse?

If sure of the cause, the best otc medication would be topical hydrocortisone. Step 1, of course, is to rinse away the hair dye as much as possible. ...Read more
