Even if you have bought it inspired by the dolphin movements in the sea, you have to remain away from your own swimming sessions to keep the dolphin alive on your belly button.
You must remember that piercing any part of your body requires a hollow needle or cannula to puncture your skin. Therefore, chlorinated water in the swimming pool can cause irritation to the pierced zone and also expose it to bacterial attack which can cause infection. Hence, the best advice is to postpone swim sessions until the piercing has healed. Usually the healing takes 3 weeks so, it is best to wait for at least 3 weeks.
Another thing you can do to save your wound is to cover it up with a bandage that seals the entire wound. The Association of Professional Piercers advices Tegadem bandages. If you still think that some amount of water has managed to stream in, treat the piercing with a solution of ¼ teaspoon of non-iodized sea salt and a cup of lukewarm water.
You may also try an antimicrobial soap like Provon or Satin to wash the pierced zone. Do not leave the area wet. Pat it dry with a fresh paper towel but do it carefully without using much pressure. By following these steps you can protect your pierced zone. However, it is wisest to resume swimming after the piercing has healed completely.
