swimming whilst having chemo

Hi to you all,
Just wanted to pick your brains with regards to swimming whilst having chemo.Had my op 8 weeks ago and 1st lot of chemo 10 days ago. I am desperate to take up swimming again as it was 1 form of exercise i really enjoyed. Is there any do's or don'ts that I should be aware of such as skincare before or after swimming. Also will the chlourine in the water affect my skin? Feel a bit silly asking but I'm sure that someone out there will be able to help. Thank you
