Actually, I saw my Doctor the other day and sure enough, it is infected! What a setback! He recommended soaking in epsom salt and then applying polysporin cream covered with a bandaid. I have been doing this for 2 days now and you wouldn't believe the difference! I have noticed the difference in this little time frame. Thank goodness as he expected it would take up to 4 weeks to heal!
I had been using peroxide to prevent infection but obviously it didn't work!!!!!
Thanks for your advice though, and if I have a setback I'll try it out!
