Consult with your doctor, but in general, my clients' physicians have told them not to swim until any open cuts, abrasions, or new tattoos are healed to the point of being sealed.

Can you yes.

Keep the wound covered with a fresh bandage just before entering the water and immediately after exiting the session. If badage if losseing after exposure to the water thats it your done.

Should you?

No give your body time to heal. and stay non aquatic for the moment.
