Can a child recovering 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.
