My awesome 98 year old Auntie is the full deck of cards mentally. She still lives independently, cooks, cleans, washes clothes, and makes up beds for incoming guests.
It was in that line of activity recently, that she severely barked her shin. She rolled a good 40-50mm of skin back down her leg.
The complicating issue besides her age, and naturally thinner skin that injures more easily, was her diabetic status. Diabetes means slower time to heal, greater risk of infection through compromised immune system, and so on.
This photo shows her with a flap of skin folded down and under on itself.
After settling her comfortably as possible and wiping off the excess blood, I immediately used the Tennant Biomodulator and Transducer to minimise her pain. That plus reduce or eliminate her need to use painkillers.
Living in a small rural town has its rewards. That reward came in the form of a helpful neighbour who was able to deftly coax out the fold of skin that was tucked under the top layer. Then tease it back as far as possible to the edge of the wound without further tearing Aunties skin on her shin
This is what it looked like.
We didnt manage to get the torn skin back to the original site where the tear started.
I also applied Renu28 redox gel under the wound dressing. Plus I did several more 10-15 minute sessions with the Tennant Biomodulator and Transducer before she went to bed that night.
Auntie said that she was pain free and able to sleep comfortably. The next day, I took her to the local medical ecntre here in Waipukurau.
This is what her wound looked like the next day before being dressed. It is still raw. But note that there is no swelling or weeping of any consequence.
I took Auntie once more to the medical centre 4 days after on the Wednesday. The practice nurse redressed her wound. The nurse applied some external “stitching.” The wound is clean and free of weeping and infection. This is the wound 4 days after the incident.
Today one week later after this, and 10 days after the incident, this is what her wound looks like.
The edges of the wound to Aunties leg are closing nicely. The skin flap is adhering nicely to the underlying flesh on the leg.
There is no sign of infection or weeping.
