Funny thing, it didn't hurt a bit. She had fun scraping on me because I just leaned back and enjoyed it a heck of a lot. The entire area itches like you cannot believe and any interaction just felt really good. I was so tempted to scratch it but of course that was a no-no!

Hydrogen peroxide is a great disinfectant, but it doesn't promote new tissue growth. I worked for a couple of veterinarians before I started college, and I was always told to keep the peroxide use to an absolute bare minimum because it was harmful to tissue. :/:

Just my 2 cents. There are things I learned from old country vets that I'd bank on long before I trusted an M.D. But that's just me.

I would do it intially but like stated not good for the healing process. Prescription Silvadene or silver sulfide fights bacterial growth and keeps infections out.

Not to laugh at your pain, but Patricia, you're painting a hilarious image here.

I know, notice I didn't mention the peroxide in the course of what I actually did... just in what the nurse recommended.
I did enough research on my own to find more than a few articles saying the same thing you did- that peroxide kills bad stuff and good stuff and can actually slow the healing process.
how exactly did you get that wound anyway? were you wearing boots? its such an odd area to have that deep of a rash.

Same here!

Actually, at the vet, we only used peroxide to clean post-op surgical wounds to remove dried blood. It works like WD40 when removing gunk.

Pretty much same here. Doesn't matter how bad it is, peroxide on blood can perform the magic disappear trick. It just sort of. . .vanishes. Very mysterious.

wow I wonder what happened to your boot to tear it up like that in such an odd location. those things sure got shredded.. maybe it got caught between a tire and a hard place or something.
glad to see the JR jacket held up, since my leathers/gear is all jr.

I usually just lick me wounds like a dog till they heal. kinda tangy till they scab up... but then I just pick those off again and start the process over again.

Since I have no recollection of how he hit me, it is assumed and from what folks told me that he probably hit me there with his tire. The PT says she's seen this kind of 3rd degree burn from other people who had a friction burn. Since the boot has no other scuff marks, the theory of being caught inbetween the bike and the road or something doesn't really hold up (and yeah, lots of theories were flying around ).

Yes, the JR jacket held up very nice. Thick good leather, I can only recommend it. Just make sure it is tight because my elbow piece moved a bit and caused me having that small gash in my elbow. No biggie but there is something to it when they say the leathers should fit like a wet suit.
