Blotchy Cheeks - Swimming

Hi Ladies,


It’s been a few years since my surgery/treatment but I seem to be suffering from really blotchy sensitive skin on my cheeks. I have worked out this seems to be due to the pool water in my local swimming pool. I have tried a few things - Vaseline, washing my face before and straight after swimming but I’m still suffering from it and its getting me down. The doctor gave me hydrocortisone cream and this helps but hasn’t eradicate it. I was wondering if anyone else suffers from this?
