The CDC's new study may make some think twice.
According to the study, chlorine isn't the only chemical responsible for those red eyes and the stinging nasally feeling you get when you leave the pool.

The CDC reports the chlorine binds with the waste, creating a byproduct called chloramines.
Chloramines move into surrounding air as well.
It's recommended swimmers take a shower before and after using any sort of pool, and of course, it's encouraged to never go to the bathroom anywhere but a bathroom.
In some serious cases, the CDC reports chloramines can cause a severe cough, especially for those who have asthma.
A good reminder to practice good hygiene!
