Suggest treatment for wounds all over body due to heart malfunction
stomach. I first noticed an oozing of a small amount of colorless, odorless slime from a spot on one leg, and subseqeuntly a much larger amount of similar slime in my crotch around the scrotum.
My heart condition had kept me from taking daily showers, which contributed to the accummulation
of the slime and eventually produced a characteristic unpleasant smell, different from all other body smells.
Is there anything I need to do apart from maintaining daily hygiene and applying anti-fungal
That is good enough!
Hi and thank you so much for this query.
I am so sorry to hear about this heart condition and the wounds that you have described. It is very common to develop wounds on the limbs and body parts when they get swollen. Please, talk to your treating doctor whether there is something that can be done to relieve you of this swollen limbs like increasing your water pill dosage, decreasing salt consumption, adjusting your heart medications, etc.
Cleansing and keeping these wounds dry is the main stay of treatment. Avoid keeping them humid and moist as these conditions promote germ multiplication and infections. Also, raising the limbs each time you sit would help reduce the amount of fluid that accumulates in the limbs. Should you notice any change like redness, increased in the size of the wound, purulent discharge, please consult your doctor for evaluation and more rigorous wound care.
I hope this helps. i wish you well. Thank you so much for using our services and feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
