Four week ago last Friday I had surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome. Two week ago the nurse took my stitches out. Last Monday I saw the same nurse for the diabetic clinic, she looked at my hand and said get some Arneca cream to reduce scarring. I went to the chemist and actually get the gel version, but a little confused as it said it's for bruising, but thought nurse knows best. There was a lot of dead skin, so it needed moisturizing, says not to use on broken skin, well there wasn't any broken, just new skin. Used it for 2 days ----- argh ----- it's as though it burnt the new skin, I have like two blisters on it now, and it's as sore as hell! Worse now than it was 2 weeks ago! I know I should have thought with having fibro I may react, but now paying the price. So now I have what I would have got in the first place had the nurse not interfered, just plain old baby oil, but it's set me back days.
