Herpes outbreaks and pools/chlorine?

Recommended Posts

Possibly, but also possibly that your body got a lot of sun, too. I've heard a lot of stories of sun triggering herpes outbreaks because it overextends the body and puts a strain on the immune system. And the longer you have herpes, the better your body tends to naturally manage it, so little triggers here and there don't push it over the edge into an outbreak.

Hmm interesting, not sure about the chlorine, however have to agree with Adrial on the sun exposure. If you get too much of it, your body will react to it.


I used to be a swim a lot and it never triggered any outbreaks, of course I am learning we all have different reactions/triggers.
