  • Can my child go swimming?

In the ocean: yes, but you must apply “total SPF coverage” sunscreen because the effect of tacrolimus (immunosuppressive medication) makes the skin more sensitive to the harmful effects of the sun (skin cancer).

In a pool: It is recommended that public pools be avoided during the first post-transplant year. On the other hand, private swimming pools (at your home, or at the homes of friends or family) are allowed.
