Could dd be allergic to her paddling pool?

We have been trying to work out what has caused dd's recent eczema flare up. I know we might never find anything but I was just thinking that dd got an inflatable paddling pool for her birthday and because water dries her skin out so much we got her some balls instead and she has been playing in it a lot. Her eczema is really bad on her legs and arms - the bits that would be in contact with the pool. Is it a crazy suggestion or could there be something in it she is reacting to?

It's feasible that there is some chemical residue on the balls or the pool which is irritating her. You could wash them just in case.
