Wet cast

Patient : I've had a cast on for about there weeks now. Already had one cast change due to cracking. Last night while taking a shower my cast got very wet. So went that I was leaving wet spot tracks wherever I walked. first thing this morning I called the doctors office to see what I needed to do. Found out they are closed for the holidays. I'm worried about mold our something like that. I should note that I'm wearing a fiberglass cast and I'm in it for foot issues not any your of broken bones. Can our should I keep this wet cast on til I can call the doctors office again tomorrow?
