NeylasMom Posted August 12, 2016 Share Posted August 12, 2016 (edited) So the soaks were working really well for Zuri. Between that, the antibiotics, and some fancy new bandaging magic on my part by Tuesday night things were looking really good. The sore was dried out and all signs of infection were gone. So yesterday I did not do soaks thinking it would be bad to wet the dry sore and for whatever reason - bandage slid and nail rubbed or Zuri licked through sock - we had an oozy sore again by last night. So I did another soak tonight and he's now passed out so the toe is getting some air. So my question is, if by tomorrow morning the sore looks good and dried out again should I still do soaks for a bit longer? It's no simple process to soak the foot, then let it stay unbandaged for a good length of time to really dry out, then apply ointment and let that dry before bandaging without him licking, but I will work from home to make it happen if I have to. My bigger concern is whether it's counterproductive to soak a wound that has just dried out, at least on the surface? We need this to be done with!
