If I have vaginal burning, can swimming in a chlorinated pool be bad or make it burn more? And also how can I fix the burning? Any home remedies?

In brief: Burning

Swimming in a chlorinated pool can certainly make it worse.
However, it's important to make sure you don't have an infection like a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis. Other causes could be sensitivity to something you are using for laundry or hygiene. I'd recommend staying out of the pool for now and getting checked out.
