Thanks. I did a cursive search as I needed to take care of whatever this is. She has what I thought was a pussy sac on top of the foot and another spot higher on the leg. I soaked it and tried to drain it but it was hard and just bled. I put betadine on it and when that dried I put benedryl spray.......thinking it might be a bug bite. I waited and applied some hydrocortisone and then wrapped it with gauze and adhesive tape and isolated her.
From what I could find on a search it appears that bumble foot is on the bottom of the foot. Her bottom foot is fine.
While soaking her feet I noticed that the right side of her face is swollen also so I gave her some liquid benedry......just a drop and a crushed baby aspirin.
You can search "large abscess on foot" that I posted it has really good pics.
My hen has healed up nicely I was able to put her back with the other girls today.
The key to getting it healed up is keeping the wound cleaned. Good Luck!
Prep H works great for staph infections on people. I thought my RIR Roo had bumble foot. I applied Prep H, and wrapped with strips from a clean tshirt. Swelling went down overnight and I realized it was not bumble foot but he had actually fractured his ankle. I continued with the Prep H and wrapping to keep swelling down and watched him until he stopped limping. He is fine now though it is apparent where the fracture was.
Prep H is good for any swelling as long as there is not a open wound. I normally use it for heat rash if in the heat to long.
