Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

Hello, Please go ahead and there will be no harm. Chlorine level will be safe. You may keep protective cream all over body and scalp during the dip. Please keep on low depth side or better still, in kid pool

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

Please avoid head soak below water surface, to avoid water entering nose and mouth.

Customer:

hello , thank you for your help :)
