I think I may have a poisonous spider bite on my finger. It is rock hard but slowly oozing sticky pus. It's very, very painful if touched, and I'm experiencing waves of burning, stinging pain that comes and goes. I've been soaking the finger in very hot water. What should I do?
I have a good plastic/wound surgeon but even after 40 Hyperbaric Oxygen treatments he tells me that I will have to have another surgery after so many since my admission to the first hospital on October 14, 2014. He has just almost given up hope and he doesn't know what to do now. My first 4 consecutive hospital visits covered 5 months and since then I have daily care, treatments, hospitalizations and surgeries. I really don't want more surgeries! I need another option.
My mother has varicose issue and she's sixty years old.The thing is recently she started getting wounds and when one wound heals after so long time another one appears. Is there a way to prevent new wounds?
A day ago I had an accident and was injured slightly. There was a tear through my sock and a wound underneath. According to medical terms it is a Laceration. I cleaned the area with antiseptic and washed it. Then I applied Hydroheal ( Hydrogel Wound Dressing with Colloidal Silver) and covered it with a sticky gauge, then normal gauge and then finally a crepe bandage. I did this because similar treatment was done before too when I had a similar wound in the hospital. Is covering okay?
My wife had a craniotomy and the fluid around the incision site never went away. after a few months the fluid became infected and started to drain. Subsequent trips to the hospital didn't cure her.and she is taking antibiotics and on Xarelto. She also had a detriment procedure and the fluid came back after a few weeks. The neurosurgeon that preformed the surgery sent her home and told us to just keep the open would clean.
