Since this conversation has gone to the dogs, I am assuming your son got the abscess drained. They should have given you paperwork and numbers to call for help. Unless you would rather trust the internet.My 6 yr old had to have an abscess drained at the hospital today. They told me how to change the dressing and what to watch for but do I clean it ever?!
Yeah, it's always this really bad thing with tolerance - it works only in two ways. if not always the "others" are intolerant....Yeah I believed forums were for discussing different viewpoints as well. I quickly learned how many people are intolerant and incapable of any idea outside of their own reality. Especially when it’s religious or political….
Hi LexiRae, post OP of an abscess, you can clean the wound with a stream of warm water like from a faucet if you can get the body part into a sink, if not then under the shower also. You cannot do anything wrong with warm water stream, after the water therapy, get your normal antibiotic salves, probiotic salves and other wound disinfection salves and apply carefully and re-cover the wound.I’m actually still waiting for someone to give me an answer so that number on the paper hasn’t been all that useful for me personally. But thank you for the comment.
Thank you! It is definitely open and although I suspect that a medical professional would not call it deep, I certainly don’t like looking at it.Also do not be afraid of using any hydrogenperoxide to clean the wound if it is not open and deep. Good luck and God bless. Gary
