the Specialist (Nurses words) turned out to be a Nurse Practitioner in the Practice.
The wound now needs to be left uncovered so it can dry up a bit.
When I get home tonight will be the first time I have seen the wound undressed as it were, so despite the good advice offered I have been unable to do anything, but I should now be able to keep an eye on things.

Surely infected wounds should be kept covered until the infection is cleared?
Why can't you use your own laptops?

Do you not have your own tablets/phones to log on?
Barry yes they are. You only let wounds 'dry out' after the infection has cleared up otherwise the wound can heal too quickly trapping infection underneath the granulating tissue.
Thanks, APG.

yes and no
depending on what it looks like

if it is really mucky then the surrounding good skin gets "macerated"
