Should my daughter swim if she has no fever but a bit of a runny nose?

It is 80 degrees today. She has no fever just a bit of a runny nose and sneezes. Should I not allow her to go to the outdoor pool?

  • She could have a bit of a runny nose for so many reasons from allergies to teething (I dont care who says what anymore some kids DO get runny noses when teething. If she has no fever and is exibiting no other symptoms I see no reason she cant cool off in the pool.
