Skin Graft Wounds
Posted by: Lindsey
Date: January 11, 2002 12:58 AM

My husband had a skin graft on the lower, outer part of his leg. This has been fine, for the graft is attatched to the muscles and it moves with the muscles. His skin had become extremely dry due to the weather. The skin cracked and soon became infected. We are now on the second batch of Cipro. There is swelling and pain. Is there anything we can do to help this?

In general, infections of the lower extremities do better if the limb is elevated and if kept warm and clean. Healing can be accelerated by using a small amount of testosterone cream around the wound area twice daily. You will need a prescription from your doctor for this and few mainstream docs will have a clue what you are talking about.
