I have posted my problem last year, received wonderful responses, antidotes, continued promise of healing. At this stage, now, amputation was spoken on, however my infected left digit has started to weep blood from the opening. Painful? Not even a scale to measure by, disfiguring absolutely, and with numerous topical creams, band-aids, cushions,soft-skin tape, mittens, gloves, my fingers still get cold and hurt. Many sleepless nights to go with it. No enjoyment to social life, depending on the weather. This is not a problem I would wish upon my worst enemy. Is there anything else out there to close the opening up in my finger, and stop this from ever coming back?
