Re: Scared about swimming...I have acne all over my chest
Samething happen to me twice and I got out of it both times. But my case is a lot worse than yours, I have multiple keloids on my shoulders, so I am really self-conscious about that. The first time I got out of it because I confessed that I was taking acne medication and that the chlorine would just further irritate my skin. The second time I lied about having 'swimmers ear' and that the water would give me ear infections. So there are ways to get out of it, you just need a note from a doctor and you'll be cleared from the activity. Or another thing you can do if you can't get a note from a doctor is just explaining your situation with your p.e teacher or school nurse. I don't know how your school system works, but they might give you the option of making up swimming with another class at a future date. So there are ways of getting out of the activity or postponing that portion of the class and completing it later.
