Incision Care

August 4th, 2008

Can anyone share the advice they were given about incision care.  My dr. said to just put on a sock, but it gets linty and irritates my incision.  I tried bandaids w/neosporin but the boot seems to pull on it and it hurts….   any advice  :)

    I still wrap my incision in several layers of gauze and secured with cloth tape, then put a sock on it.

    hobblit - using gauze, tape, and sock worked for me too.

    I just got the boot today but the elasticated bandage (loose fitting, not too tight on leg) seems fine so far. If this fails I plan to use 2 socks, a very thin inner sock and a nylon/cotton outer sock (soccer type).
