why do I always get joint pain after a shower?

can someone explain? showering is such a terrible chore for me. after I step out of the bathroom I get terrible widespread muscle and joint pain. sometimes a redness on my face accompanies the above symptoms. nusea and occasionally a low grade fever hits me too.

this all happened at age 16 when I got sick with a long lasting 2 months flu

ever since showering is a pain to me.

should I consult a doctor?

    It may be that you have absorbed chlorine from the water, especially if you tend to take very hot showers. AIt isn't totally unheard of. Chlorine in the water kills bacteria but it is also toxic to the human body. There are filters available that will remove it from the water.
