Wound care: Wound has healed, but skin around breaking down
My husband incurred a wound on his lower right leg. The wound iteself has healed. The problem is the skin around the wound is breaking down. He is using Silvercel antimicrobial alginate dressing on the area. He is experiencing very bad stinging, burning and some bleeding in this area. So bad he cannot sleep at night. Has anyone had experience with this type of skin breakdown? If so, please advise if you know of anything that can be used to help with the pain. Thank you.
