Denee,

I'll PM you an updated picture when I get home. It may not be as bad as I make is sound, the surrounding area is closing in nicely and is itching, which is a good sign. I just want to know how to accelerate the healing and hoped it can be done by removing the callous (if that is what you want to call it) that is hindering this process.

In the pic of my foot, it is the area closest to my toes. New skin nicely developed in about 5 mm but now is sorta stuck with the white skin blocking new growth.

Keep in mind when it comes to physcians, they're like mechanics, you have to keep shopping/investigating for the right one! In the meantime, you continue with whatever means necessary!
Guess I'll just have to come to your house to see your ankle and the condtion it's actually in.
I'd contact that site also and ask. I've treated DU's from the size of a quarter to the size of a Softball! If your ankle has no skin covering it, it's not much different than that of a bedsore, but thank its superficial! Remember skin is our first line of defense, and you're doing what's necessary to keep it clean and free from infection.
This is one of several offerings in an attempt to give you some helpful advise. If you were my daughter, I'd be searching like a maniac to find the right dr. for good advise. If your Dr. is not helping~ he's a butthead!

Excellent. Exactly what I was looking for. Great info. Danged if you do or danged if you don't.

"Not all wounds need debridement. Sometimes it is better to leave a hardened crust of dead tissue, called an eschar, than to remove it and create an open wound, particularly if the crust is stable and the wound is not inflamed."

OR what I had thought of:

"Surgical debridement (also known as sharp debridement) uses a scalpel, scissors, or other instrument to cut dead tissue from a wound. It is the quickest and most efficient method of debridement."


SO: Question! Where can a find a good doctor that can look at my foot and determine what is the best way of debridement or to let it just be?

Or, Denee, if you seriously want to look at it (which I welcome!), let me know and I'll call you.

Denee was PT tech I think so she should have some knowledge. You could also call around to some of the nursing homes for there recommendations on wound care. What I see you typing it does not sound like it is going to badly.

ps do not use honey but sugar with papain is OK honey can cause all sort of infections mostly anaerobic.
