Remove Tape Ankle Leg Ulcer Tearing Skin
Warm water...time: I am assuming you are talking about hypafix tape which sticks to the skin. The easiest way is to soak the entire dressing with warm water or saline until it loosens up. More importantly, it is never a good idea to use tape directly on the skin if it can be avoided. Ankle ulcers are typically a result of varicose veins. A compression dressing avoids the use of tape and provides compression therapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Exact synonym so far as this pathologist is concerned. An ulcer is a lesion on a body surface (outer or inner) in which the epithelium and at least some of the underlying connective tissue has been lost specifically to necrosis (cell death) rather than just mechanical or chemical injury.

Best answered: By someone reviewing your xrays and examining your foot. Residual pain is certainly plausible from the injury itself...Osteoarthritis is a possibility as well. If your hardware was removed due to an infection then your immediate concern should be the infection being cleared and then discuss with doc how we can move forward from there....Your too young to have continued pain... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Broke big toe on 8/12. Detached toenail. Skin is falling off in sheets from ALL toes on the foot. No cast. Walking boot,now surgical shoe. Why?
Quit Sloughing off.: Skin sloughing, particularly after a period of immobilization and departure from one's daily bathing routine, is almost a given when the immobilization and swelling end. Layers of dead skin cells that are normally sloughed during one's daily routine have piled up and are revealed as these skin "sheets". One can only imagine how much skin is shedded daily by your body daily. ...Read more
Finger avulsion, nail bed intact. Distal finger pad tore off, no tendon exposed, no bone fracture. Full movement, Tx options full thickness graft, leave to heal on own, or amputate proximal to nail bed. Risks and recommendations.
Avoid amputation: If you have adequate soft tissue over the bone and tendon, there would be no reason to amputate. A tip without graft will usually gradually fill in, but graft can get quicker coverage. A general rule of thumb is that if area is less than 1 cm in diameter graft not much benefit, if it is quite a bit larger than that then placing a graft on is a consideration. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
