Can I swim with an infected toe/ingrown toenail?

I had ingrown toenails removed on both toes a couple days ago (they cut a little bit of the nail off all the way down to the root). The injuries are pussing/bleeding a little, but I really want to swim tonight. Can I swim, and if not, would it be okay if I put a bandage over it?
Update: Btw, the doctor said it was infected (there is some dead and swollen skin on the side) but I'm taking a perscribed antibiodic
