User :   Hello
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :  
How can i help you?
User :   Right, very dodgy question here, and not exactly an every day one. However, i was working on a High Frequency 320 Communicator Radio, i sat on the End-Line Antenna, which, when in direct contact with things, like human flesh, works like a microwave, and cooks from the inside outwards, meaning because of the location of the nerve endings, you do not feel it immediately. Undoubtedly a part of my buttock has been part cooked, based on colouration and feel. My concern is, will the "cooked" part of my buttocks go rancid or even gangrenous?
Doctor :  
Do you have the sensations in that area?
User :   No, but i have pain in the surrounding area
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
This does not look like gangene.
Doctor :  
The chance of gangrene is unlikely.
Doctor :  
Apply silverex cream over the area.
Doctor :  
You need to take a tetanus toxoid.

Doctor :  
if there discoloration increases or if the sensation in the area decreases,
