Hot Tub Flare Up

Hot Tub Flare Up

Hello, my partner has psoriasis all over his body. We got a new hot tub in April and when he uses it his psoriasis flares up bad. Obviously, it’s due to the chemicals in the water. I’m just wondering if there are any alternatives out there you can use in the hot tub that’s kinder to skin. I got told about a seaweed one but cannot find it anywhere.

Get a salt system. They’re usually in pools but you can get a converter for the hot tub. No chemicals, just add salt to the water and the filter changes it to hypochlorus acid. It’s amazing, and helps my skin more than anything else (and no harsh chemicals, doesn’t even burn your eyes)
