I posted in the summer about dropping something on my foot and asking for skin advice . That was 18 weeks ago and as you see from the photo ( sorry it's so large ) this is the state my ankle is in now . The nurse has used waterproof dressings for this entire time . I have never been allergic to plasters , but after fourteen weeks my skin started to break out . Instead of switching to a bandage , she persisted in trying to place it away from what I now know is excema . The last time it happened I left the surgery with liquid running down my ankle and went to our walk in centre who cleaned it and bandaged it and said to ask the nurse for a swab . Sure enough of was infected again and the gp issued her another scrip for antibiotic s . This is the third in this time . It was never suggested by her that the gp should see it .
To cut to the chase , the irritation was so bad , I saw a locum on Friday and guess what , I have Impetigo to add to the eczema and yet another antibiotic . The bit in the middle is the original wound which is healing and is now just a third of the size .
I want to know what you think about making a complaint as I have been through hell one way or another ? Thank you if you read this Pp
