There is nothing more worse in the world then knowing you can't go swimming in a pool, or a lake, or a ocean, or a pond, or a bog, or a backed up sewage system because you got a little scratch and you don't want to get a little infection from it. After I realized the horror of this possibility I had to find a way around it and that's when i stumbled across waterproof bandaids or bandages and not only then nexcare waterproof bandages. These are the most amazing invention the i've ever heard of since i was born. You can get a cut or scratch and put one of these nexcare awesome waterproof amazing power bandages on and then go swimming without anything bad happening to you. I could believe this was real when I bought and would require anyone in the world to buy them if they want to go swimming even if they don't have an open cut or wound, because you might as well be prepared when it does happen.
