What is the best way to keep an arm cast completely dry when showering.


My 12 year old just fractured his forearm yesterday and we are wondering if there are any ways to ensure no leakage while he is showering. I know placing a plastic bag over it, but how do you ensure no seepage or moisture getting in there? This is my first broken bone to deal with - anything else I need to know about cast care? I don't want him getting infections or germs in there etc. (I'm an overprotective mama lol)
