Will swimming with a cut cause an infection?

it depends on how fast your cut heals

It really depends on what kind of body of water you are swimming in... your best bet is to swim at the beach... the salty water will clean it out and disinfect it

no, the swimming will not affect the cuts on your knees. the chlorine might have the cuts sting but, overall, you'll be fine.

In a pool will be O.K. because the chlorine kills germs.
If it is a river, you may want to wait.

ya if its in the ocean its GOOD for your cut.

If you go swimming nothing will happen to your cuts. It may sting for a while in the ocean but it will feel better. The chlorine in a lap pool will clean it.

If it's a deep cut I would advise not, but if it's just paper cut deep then it should be fine. but don't swim in like a lake or something until it heals because it could cause infection.

Yeah. I've had cuts and went swimming.

It depends on how dirty the water is you are swimming in.

no ive done it plenty of times, the chlorine in the water is their to kill all bacteria and stuff. unless your swimming in like a lake

Pool sounds ok in a lake or stream or bayou I would advise against it.

Well, my brother once cut himself in the pool (and I'm not talking a band-aid cut, or even a sterile-pad cut, but a thirteen plus stitches cut) and the doctors were amazed by how clean it was (they put chlorine in pools to kill germs). So, I'd say it's okay to swim in a clean pool with a cut. Swimming in chlorinated pools is also good for relieving the itching of bug bites and poison ivy. Though, if you had to get stitches for the cuts you're talking about, I'd ask your doctor.
