Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
While on chemotherapy, the effects of the drugs are seen only on the body of the person who is taking the chemotherapy. The effects are not transmitted to others through contact or through air. Your daughter can safely play with her grandmother without worrying for the side effects.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Regards,
Dr. Praveen Tayal
