I’ve not message back to previous messages due to having a severe dental abscess.
But this is the current state of my scald, today most of the skin has fallen off.
I have 2nd degree burns to my hand, I visited the nurse again yesterday to be acquainted by a gp who said it looks “fine” I wasn’t given any dressings or creams etc. Was told to just dap a little Vaseline on it. I explained over the week it had oozed a green yellow pus but they were not concerned at all. I was in and out in 5 mins flat.
I can move my 4 fingers now but my thumb is numb. I also explained that to them both but again they said the feeling should come back within the next week or 2.
I have no feeling where the burnt skin in the middle of my hand is, it’s not yet peeled but if I touch it I don’t feel a thing...
I’ve been told to expect this & not to cover it. It’s very hard having no bandage or dressing because if anything touches it I whimper! It still has a slight burn to it, & I’ve been a little worried about the way it looks but to a gp & a nurse at my surgery it doesn’t look like anything to worry about.. I’m taking antibiotics for my dental abscess if there is a infection in my hand will the medicine work on that too ?
Even with a bad burn I’m not taken seriously it’s quite disheartening as I’ve been in a lot of pain with this.
Just keeping you all updated x
