Yes, that's infection.
Does it look sort of like this?
Yes. That's what it looks like. The pockets are filling with it
I suspected... that's why I was using the alcohol so much. How do I proceed?
Can you get some chlorhexidine or betadine? And how about those pictures?
I can't post pictures for some reason. I did send you one via email, though. But it was after I'd cleaned it already.
When did you send it?
Don't use betadine, use a nolvasan product instead to rinse the wound. Just flushing with warm water is good, and then apply Silvadene, or triple antibiotic ointment if you have that. Make sure that the maggots and fly eggs are all gone, and check her vent area too. Immediately! Gently soak the scab off if there's pus and gunk under it, and then use the ointment. Mary
I can re-send...
I just checked her vent and looks normal. No maggots, thank goodness. I don't think I can face that again tonight.
I will get some silvadene tomorrow.
Is silvadene something you can get at a regular pharmacy or at tractor supply?
