Advice?

So, apparently Dylan has (mild) eczema, like his mother. =( I've been using Aquaphor and Eucerin for his dry skin, and the doctor has said to keep using that, and that if it gets worse she'll subscribe something. I'm also considering signing the boy's up for swim classes, but i'm wondering if it'll be OK for Dylan's skin? I know i should've asked today, but I completely forgot.


(Here's a link to what I'm considering http://www.sealswimschool.com/  One of the locations is only 10-15 min away from where I live, so I figured it was something we could do.)

If I recall correctly, the chlorine will irritate his eczema more.

I would ask but it depends on how bad it is. Personally, I would try it and see how he did with it.

Yeah the chlorine could possibly irritate his skin .. Bc I know when I get my son wet more than 2 days a week he breaks out really bad on his legs .

My second has eczema and the chlorine on the water does effect his skin. I just make sure to shower him right after he gets out of the pool and then lather him down with the aquaphor after that.
