Laser Wart removal and swimming

Patient: How long after laser wart removal (no stitches, C02 laser, wart less than 5mm diameter) is it safe to go swimming. The area is black and scabbed dry. Nearly one week since surgery

 

 

Doctor: Two weeks after surgery should be enough time for the area to heal and thus not be affected by swimming.
