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)
My 11 year old son broke his forearm last year and it was in a cast for 4 months. I can totally relate to your concerns. The solution we came up with was.. baths. I realize that boys would rather take a shower but it was the only way I could think of to keep that cast dry for sure. Good luck
We bought a cast cover from the drug store for my daughter's leg when she broke it. It kept it totally dry. Showers worked best for her leg, but baths might be better for an arm. She had no issues, infections, etc. once removed other than extreme hair growth. LOL
