A Christchurch Pharmacist says they are dealing with a large number of customers coming in with skin complaints who have never had eczema or dermatitis before

Pharmacist and owner of Unichem Cashel Pharmacy and Post Centre Annabel Turley told Chris Lynch she believes it is a direct result of the high levels of chlorine in the water.

Turley says these people have never suffered before and now are having to spend money on treatments to clear up their normally healthy skin.
