In brief: Swimming with a cold

Hello. If your son only has a mild cough but no fever, vomiting or other symptoms, it is fine to let him go swimming.
Being in the water will not make him more ill and he will probably enjoy it on a hot, humid day. If there are other children present who are sick, however, it is possible for him to catch their illnesses as well.
