Pages: 1Showing 1 - 8 of 8 for blistering incision. (0.001 seconds)

... Thanks.... I did call the doctors office and they said hydrocortizone won't impact healing any (the incision is totally closed anyways). I'm just hoping this clears up soon, as most of the blisters are popping and they're rubbing raw from walking in the boot, and I don't know if I can take being back on crutches too much longer.

... Hi! I am three months out and had PTTD transfer, calcaneal osteotomy and gastroc slide. My foot still turns purple but swelling is really improved. I had some incision problems causing blistering, inflammation and more than expected nerve damage but my PT and surgeon are confident I'll be better than before including running, weight lifting and heel/calf raises.

... I'm just 6 weeks out from surgery to repair a torn tendon and when I got the cast off they said to leave the steri-strips on and that they'd fall off on their own.... I now have a blistered rash (which usually pop and ooze when I'm walking around in the boot) covering the area where they put that sticky stuff to keep the steri-strips on. They've all fallen off now, but I... (6 replies)
