Bruised After Swimming?
Morning. Yesterday afternoon I swam, I did not warm up first and felt shivering. But my stomach contents and eventually no longer shivered. Then I felt pain in the knee. At home I see because the pain is quite pronounced, it turns out there is a bruise. Before swimming, the bruise was not available, and after I slept, I noticed that the bruise was increasingly visible in red. My palms were also red. My question was, can the bruise occur because of exposure to chlorine water, not because of anything else? Thank you in advance.
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Bruising is basically a buildup of blood under the skin, which can occur when there are broken blood vessels and make the blood come out of its proper place. This condition is most natural when you are hit, hit or have an accident, but can also occur without any triggers, namely in people with low platelet levels.
In your case, there should be no link between bruising and chlorine exposure or swimming without heating. Our advice, you should check your complaint with a general practitioner first to ascertain whether it is really bruised or not, and if so, look for trends through history, physical examination and support if necessary. It is important to narrow down the possibilities and determine the best treatment for you.
Meanwhile there is no need to worry too much, because often these bruises can disappear by themselves without special handling. Compress the bruised area with a cold compress, relax your body, and may take over-the-counter pain relievers if there is pain. Going forward, pay attention if this starts happening frequently and report it to your doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
