Painful urination after swimming - Baquacil

Postby littleswimmer » Sun 23 May, 2010 18:34

Last year my 5 year old daughter started having very painfull stinging urniation after swimming in our pool. We used it today for the first time this year and she had the same experience. Last year during the problems she was tested for bladder infection and other possible causes, results all negative. We use Baquacil to treat our pool and based on the experineces last year the concentrations of the chemcils in the water did seem to have an impact of on the urination. I have read about allegic reactions of this sort to cholrine, but I have not come across anything regarding this as a possible side effect of Bauqucil. She does not have any issues when swimming lakes or other pools.

If she doesn't have a reaction in other pools, then she probably doesn't have any problem with chlorine -- most people don't. You could switch to chlorine instead of using Baquacil or you can look to see if you are using enough Baqua and hydrogen peroxide chemicals or perhaps too much.
