    I very rarely use cutting and SH much anymore. I only usually overdose. However i was in a big mess last week and burnt my leg. The wound was ok for a few days however yesterday it was burning hot and the area around it had raised probably about 5cam all around it so I now think it is infected. I really cannot be bothered with anti biotics so I have found a load of dressings which I got from going to a tissue viability study day on placement. I have dresswd it with inadine to suck the infection out and a release swab to cover the inadine. It seems to be working as when I changed the dressing this morning the red raised area around the wounds has gone down but today it is stinging and burning like a bitch. Of course now I have dressed it and got a big fat dressing on my leg my fiance is not impressed and giving me a hard time but oh well. I just hope the infection doesnt get worse.
