My dd (17) came back from her vacation with her father, his gf, their dog and her brothers. Last Sunday (it's been a week and a day) the dog wrapped her rope around my dd's ankle and ran (it all happened very quickly, I'm told) and now my dd has a rope burn on her ankle. Apparently her father in his infinite wisdom thought it was a good idea to just leave it open. Personally, I thought you would want to keep it clean and covered but what do I know? It's not infected and it has scabbed over.
I poured some hydrogen peroxide on it, then put neosporin on a sterile bandage. I wrapped a triangle bandage around it to keep the bandage on and to provide cushion between her ankle and anything else. I'm having her elevate it as much as possible.
Is there anything else I can do to aid the healing process?
