13:35 – Advice needed asap please!

3 Apr

I know I said I was taking a break from blogging but I have just noticed something and I need advice. Admittedly the best advice would be to go up to my local a&e where I was told to go if I thought I saw signs of infection, but after the anxiety the last a&e trip caused, I’m somewhat reluctant to go.

Anyways here is the problem. I self harmed and had stitches in for a week. The stitches were taken out five days ago and the wound all looked neat. I was advised to keep dressings on it for another week to stop my trousers rubbing on it. A couple of days ago I noticed it was starting to look like it was re-opening. Today it has gone all yellow and gross at one end.

I don’t like posting photos of self harm wounds and I know many people don’t like to look at them. But I would really appreciate if someone who knows a little about self harm or wounds would have a quick look at the bit I have put an arrow next to and advise if they would go up to a&e to let the nurses check it.

I will post a second post in a moment which will be password protected so no one is offended by the photo. The password for it is: selfharm

Thank you in advance for any words of advice!

    I’m glad that you went to the hospital to take care of the wounds.

    Please try to be kind to yourself and look after yourself. I know it’s probably the last thing you want to do right now, but I just pray for you that you manage to do so.
