Cast Care A cast is a rigid protective material of plaster or fiberglass. Cast care includes keeping the cast clean and dry, not putting anything down inside the cast, or break or trim part of the cast. If anything occurs to the cast (becomes wet and does not dry, becomes very tight and painful, or has a foul smell) see a health care professional.
