Suggest remedies for swelling and redness in the navel caused by an infection
Yes, this means that healing is good!
Hi and thank you so much for this query.
I am so sorry to hear about infection that you have. I have reviewed your information fully and all the attached images. The information clearly points to the fact that there is good healing going on. This is further confirmed by the image which shows barely no signs of an active infection. Generally, it takes any where from 7-10days for full healing to occur. I will recommend you cleanse regularly with an antiseptic or with soap and warm water before applying the Fucidine gel. There is nothing that even raises suspicion about necrotizing fasciitis. This is a very painful condition and cannot passed unnoticed. You are definitely worried and concerned about your health but these findings are more than reassuring that there is nothing to worry about.
I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask of more information and clarifications if need be.
Sorry for all these question, but I am scheduled to travel in a few days and want to make sure it isn't too risky to go on trip...in other words by ruling out the potential of a serious skin infection that may cause me to go to hospital abroad. A very stressful prospect when on vacation! thanks.
The images, reduced drainage and foul odor are very suggestive!
Hi and thanks for the additional image.
I have reviewed it and am so sure that your worries are real and more so because of this upcoming trip. I have reviewed your information fully and the additional image and still maintain this is no major concern. Beside less drainage, less pain and no more foul odor are all signs that treatment helping and great.
To me, cleansing often and this antibiotic ointment is okay. If you must travel, being more aggressive with an oral antibiotic could be considered for precautionary reasons but not exactly required.
Yes, not really required. Calm down and don't be too disturbed by having a severe infection. Nothing suggests that at this time.
