They say the group is always smarter than the individual. So I thought I’d throw this one out to y’all.
I had an open wound from my second surgery. It has finally scabbed over by leaving it out of the boot and exposed to air. Certainly has taken awhile…over a month. Fortunately, no infection.
My question: now that it has scabbed over, do I treat the scab with anything (Neosporin, etc.)?
My doctor was unhelpful about this. I’d love to know what any of you did or would suggest. And, I know, you aren’t doctors and any advice is taken at my own risk…
Here’s a photo (sorry if it’s gross but it looks a million times better than it did at beginning of week):
Thanks in advance for any advice!
UPDATE: Here is what it looks like at two months:
It’s getting better but sloooooooooowly.
