You can go swimming if you have a cold. You should make sure you eat enough to sustain you about 1-2 hours before you go and take plenty of water with you.
It is probably not a good idea to go swimming if you have a cold. Your body is trying to fight the infection and you need to rest so it can do so. If you do need to go swimming then you should make it a light workout.

Definitely not recommended. You can die.

Yes, of course you can go swimming as long as the water is not cold. Just make sure you dry yourself and change clothes as soon as you get out of the water. You cannot lie in the sun.

Can you go swimming if you have a bad cough or runny nose?

You definitely can go swimming. The question should be, "Should you go swimming if you have a bad cough or running nose?" And no, you should not go swimming unless the water is warm enough, almost hot. - User:Johnnyeg94-IMPROVED ANSWER-(BY SUNLIGHT210)My advice to you is to NOT go swimming with any symptoms of a cold or any sickness. One reason is that you're mucus can get into the water and spread, and because of the infected water, other people can get sick. Another reason is that it will most likely worsen your sickness. Therefore, it is not recommended to go swimming with symptoms of a cold or any other disease.Hope that helps!~Sunlight210
