Swimming and low immunity

I want to get back to swimming after the worst flair and c-dif infection of my life. I am currently on Stelara & imuran and worry about the risk of infection.
Does anyone else swim? How do you get around/ Handel the fear of infection?
Wherever you be.... let the wind blow free!

My Support Groups:
I have not had any issues with swimming, from private pool to public to the pond on my mom's farm.

I wouldn't swim with an open wound bigger than a scrape, shower after to wash off... I really don't take any special precautions and haven't had any issues.

While my experiences may not be what everyone has had- I feel it is worthwhile to share any and all experiences that may be beneficial to others.
