Cast padding has arrived that can allow you to get fiberglass casts wet so you can shower or bathe without having to wrap the cast in a waterproof cast cover. The cast should be allowed to dry before getting it wet again. Usually they will dry within 1-3 hoiurs. Gravity and blow dryers on a cool setting can assist with drying. It is still recommended to avoid wearing the cast in natural bodies of water because of the potential for waterborne parasites and conaminants.
