    Dear Ann

    Please talk with your Doctor and other health professionals to find solutions together. Can you request a good food diet sheet also.

    Kind wishes

    Hi ann37888

    It sounds that it is to stop infection with the previous skin. This is because it acts as a second dressing. I suggest that you continue treatment as I ended up having surgery to save my foot.
