Try a hair blower: Place it on the cooler setting rather than the heat so you don't burn yourself. They do sell shower cast covers - prevention is always best. You also need to inform your doc as a wet cast may be problematic.

It should not be wet: You need to call your doctor. Depending on wet it is, it may need to be changed. A wet cast can create a fungus infection of the skin and start to smell.
