Can swimming in indoor pools aggravate my child's asthma?

Asthma and Swimming

Parents of children with asthma should be careful when taking their children to public swimming pools. Some studies show that byproducts of a reaction caused by mixing chlorine with sweat, skin particles, urine and other organic substances can aggravate asthma. To lessen the effects of these byproducts on your children, take your children to outdoor swimming pools or make sure that the indoor pool you frequent is well ventilated and clean.
