“Some bacteria or viruses in the water which can not be eliminated by chlorine give rise to infections in the eyes of the children, are those known as”conjuntivits of swimming pools”.

To attend public swimming pools, is a condition quite frequent in the summer between the kids, so we will talk of How to prevent it and what to do in the event that we have not been able to avoid it.

Red eyes, tearing, itching, sensitivity to light, sensation of having sand in your eyes are some of the symptoms that make us suspicious of the existence of conjunctivitis, the most common eye infection in cheap bikinis.

The causes are, in the majority of cases, the chlamydia (Chlamydia trachomatis), a bacteria resistant to the chemicals that are cast in the water of the swimming pools. It may also be caused by certain viruses such as adenovirus and herpes virus.

At the same time, the chlorine is also very irritant, which can produce a reaction known as chemical conjunctivitis. It is a mild conjunctivitis does not need treatment.

Prevent conjunctivitis of the pools

If you are going to go to a public swimming pool is recommended:

  • Use diving goggles that protect eyes from contact with the water.
  • Do not share towel
  • Take a shower after the bath
  • Avoid the child to touch or rub your eyes
  • Use sunglasses with a UV filter to avoid exposing the eyes to sunlight

What to do if you have conjunctivitis

If your child has conjunctivitis should not enter the head in water and must be the eyes protected with sunglasses.

Of course, wash your hands frequently, do not share personal toilet items or kissing or get too close to other children since it spreads very easily.

If after 24 hours the conjunctivitis persists see your doctor who will prescribe antibiotic drops.
