I looked up how to stop the fluid leaking out of my legs to see if I could do anything myself. There are a lot of ideas. I tried. I failed.
One part did seem to work a bit. I found the advice to scrape off all dead and whitish skin. This holds liquid and is not going to heal. Getting rid of it allows the healthier skin below to have a better chance of becoming healthy.
So I did that and will keep doing it daily. It is a very painful procedure, but definitely helps.
Then I found the idea to mix:
- coconut oil
- activated charcoal
and coat that over the open wounds. Wrap it in gauze, apply pressure with tight socks or pant legs and change this dressing a couple of times a day.
This hurts more than scraping off the skin, the fluid still flows, and my legs are now stained, more painful and red.
I looked again to see this mix should be applied sparingly and with a lot of dilution. I must agree.
Today I will get more gauze and keep trying, but I feel a bit discouraged.
This is one of my shoes with liquid from my leg soaking it after just a short walk. The sock is also soaked through. What could be more gross?
How I am going to get myself to Bangkok on Saturday is a mystery I hope I solve. I'm working on the most convenient options instead of the cheapest like I normally pick. This is done between sleeping on and off throughout each day and night. Praying for strength and courage now.
