Catfish spine injury

This is coming along nicely. Less swelling. The gauze wick did its job over the weekend, no more pus, no odour. The occlusive dressing has caused the skin to discolour and top layer has peeled off, but a dry dressing will sort this out. Our microbiologist tells me that the germ causing this has not been described in Myanmar before (once in Thailand) so we might write it up for a journal. I like the idea of doing the dressing change inside a polythene bag, to reduce contamination.
