Doctor insights on:
Child With Pneumonia Go Swimming
Yes: If fever is down and child feels better and pool is not cold then swimming may be therapeutic. This is well served with common sense...Fatigued, short of breath, etc...No exertion= no swimming . Feeling good, back to normal and not an all day event at the water park, and water is warm (not a lake!) then yes. Ask your doc as that is best answer in your geographic area. ...Read more
Not advised: The child's respiratory capacity may be compromised, making them more prone to tiring and then risk of accidental drowning. With bacterial pneumonia, there is usually a fair amount of fluid in the lungs, and thus the capacity may be compromised. It would be ok to dangle feet in the water, but i wouldn't advise actual swimming until done with medicine and cleared by doctor. ...Read more

How soon does Aspiration pneumonia start?I was swimming last night andaccidentally inhaledsome water.I have had pain wheni breathe deeply occasionally
Inhaling pool water: Aspiration pneumonia usually occurs in debilitated patients who cannot protect their airway. I can imagine when u accidentally inhaled some pool water, u coughed vigorously. This is your body's way of protecting u. Patients that get aspiration pneumonia have largely lost this protective effect. If any pool water did somehow make it deep into your lungs, I believe u will recover just fine. ...Read more
Wouldn't worry: I detest wading pools for toddlers because so many would pass parasites like Giardia, but not threadworms. An older kid swimming in a regular pool is not a problem.It is the dry eggs in bedclothes/sheets that pass this problem.The pool water will disperse & neutralize them ...Read more
A few weeks:
It takes a few weeks. Mostly we're waiting for the ear drum to heal around the grommet itself. After that swimming is generally ok. If you can get the soft earplugs that just sit on top and don't insert into the ear canal, that's better. I'd also stick with surface swimming in a swimming pool or ocean only. Avoid diving and lakes/ponds which can have higher amounts of bacteria. ...Read more
Indoors - ok: Indoors - away from sun -- ok. Outdoors -- avoid it. The water magnifies and reflects the sun-- bad for you. Be sure to apply moisturizing lotion after showering to help skin heal. Good Luck. ...Read more
Ask your implanter.:
There are too many variables to give an overall accurate answer in all settings.
From the skin wound standpoint, as soon as they say you can immerse it in a bathtub, you could swim.
For a new pacemaker implant, you cannot raise your arm above your head until the wires heal in place; typically after a month. This would impact the reach for most swimming strokes. Ask your cardiologist. ...Read more
Yes.: A Nexplanon insertion leaves a similar small needle skin wound that a blood test does. Provided the wound is healing well, and shows no signs of an infection (redness, warmth, discharge, excessive pain), you can keep the area covered with a bandaid while swimming, then clean the area with soap and water afterwards, pat area dry and reapply a clean bandaid. ...Read more
Ask: Ask the acupuncturist.Get a more detailed answer ›
Mmmmmm...: I'm not sure we'd be the right people to answer this question for you. Skin grafts can be quite fragile at times. Have you been following up with the surgeon who did them? That would be the physician to really know how these have healed over the past 10 months and if something like swimming would be safe. Lots of bacteria in water, you know. ...Read more

Currently treating vaginal fungal infection with clatrimazole(?), can I go swimming in pools or sea? How long to wait? Im on holiday, I want to enjoy!
OK to swim: This doesn't need to interfere with swimming or any other holiday activity (except maybe vaginal sex!). If you're having significant external genital symptoms (e.g. labial or vulvar irritation and itching), some vigorous physical activities (e.g. biking, running, etc) might be a bit uncomfortable, but not harmful. Just use the medication as directed and do whatever isn't bothersome. ...Read more
Depends.: Usually patients are able to swim within a few weeks after this procedure. However, every patient should run this question by their plastic surgeon who knows their situation best ( for example whether or not they are healing nicely without complication) and is ultimately responsible for their care. ...Read more
I had a steroid injection in my back today (epidural) for my herniated disc. When am I able to go swimming at a public pool or waterpark?
Steroid injection: The best source for this information would be the provider who gave you the injections. There are many things that must be considered in making any recommendations on this topic. Usually patients are provided with information after a procedure which may help you in this matter. ...Read more
Pneumonia: Probably not. If the child really has pneumonia and is a pre-kindergartner they belong at home with their parents until they have recovered, but obviously advice in this regard is at the discretion of the pediatrician seeing the child. Would frankly be surprised if many pediatricians were recommending attendance at preschool for a child with pneumonia. ...Read more
No: You are not "supposed" to have a vaporizer. If you have one and it helps humidify the air then ok. I would not suggest buying one for pneumonia. Humidifiers and vaporizers are not as popular as they were years ago as the hot ones can burn a toddler who gets out of bed and the cool ones can grow germs if the water is not changed regularly. If it works for you, then use it. Otherwise no worries. ...Read more
Time, usually: Most forms of pneumonia in children do not produce permanent changes in lung tissues, and with time and gradual increases in physical activity your child should recover uneventfully. If, however, they fail to do so, would strongly recommend they being seen by a pediatrician or pediatric pulmonologist. Truly believe and hope this will not be needed. Hope they get well soon. ...Read more
Is viral pneumonia contagious? A child where i work was diagnoised with viral pneumonia. Is it contagiious?
Maybe: Viruses can be transmitted person to person, however a virus that causes pneumonia in one person may not necessarily cause pneumonia in another person who is infected with it. For example the flu can can cause a fever, muscle aches and few lung symptoms in one person but a severe pneumonia in another. ...Read more
