Starting this year, I have this allergy on my ears, eyebrow and neck every time after I swam. Is there anything I can do to prevent this allergy ? The allergy is itchy and red but it will go away in a few days time. The next time I go swimming again, the allergy will come back. Please advise. Thanks.

There may be 2 possibilites that cause allergy. 1) May be allegic to sunlight. So try swimming indoor. 2) May be allergic to pool water detergent or antibacterial. So try swimming in sea water for a change.
