No, absolutely not .. no way!! Doing so exposes other swimmers to any infection that may be present in the wound. A contaminated pool may require a complete draining of all its water and a thorough scouring of the pool interior, a very very expensive project, and lots of upset people in the meantime. Don't even consider it. No!

No. The infection can aggreviate. You don't need to swim in that condition. If you do, you risk even more severe infection. Also, you need to consult your doctor for the thorough advice.
