Apologies for the details in advance. I have been using Bricanyl via sof sets for six years without problems, but just before Christmas of last year I developed a small ulcer a couple of weeks after the sof set was removed. After much messing about by various parties silver dressings and it healed, but during this time another former site became a problem also. Three months down the line this site is so inflamed it has become purple, the skin tissue feels like a blister in that there is fluid under the skin. Daily the skin dies and peels away, with the skin left underneath being rather sore and angry looking, with some areas breaking down altogether. The damaged area is now about 3 inches in diameter. I have had no further problems with old sites in the past couple months. I have been to my GP, District Nurse who has suggested that I should dilute the Bricanyl which I won't because I am doing it the way the Brompton taught me, my respiratory nurse who after asking around (I am under local care), referred me back to the District Nurse, my dermatology nurse who has been great, who then asked a tissue viability nurse. But today I am no further to sorting this sore site out than I was 3 months ago.
I am getting desperate to sort this out, close fitting clothes are uncomfortable and if I accidentally knock myself I really know about it. So if anyone has any ideas they would very much appreciated.
