Tomorrow will mark 2 weeks that my son has had this wound. He had it glued at the er the day it happened.

1 week later, last Thursday, I noticed some liquid seeping out of the tape they applied to the wound. I took him to the er and they were uncertain if it was infected. They removed the tape to check, and the cut split open again! Ugh! They said the infection was minor but they couldn't re glue or stitch and it just had to heal open like this. My son asked when he could go to the beach and the dr said about a week if the infection goes away.

So tomorrow marks a week and my sister has planned to take him. I'm not sure I will let him go. The infection is gone for sure. There is no puss. The shinyness of it is from polysporin (which has been caked on for the etnire week.) If he does go, I will apply a good water proof bandage or 3 lol Is it too soon?
