Thanks Rhoda! I'll check the drug stores for the saline solution - should be less expensive than the medicated nasal spray.
This thread was about dry burning skin... Usually my skin is not burning but just becomes itchy - dried out I suppose. And that depends on the pool. The choline level in the outdoor pool seems to be less as does the itchy skin afterwards.....
I would have thought protests from the pool "officials" would have been received by anyone it they were found to use oils or creams before their swim, for the reasons Coach Dave mentioned.
