Dressings

I have to wear long skirts and trousers to hide my dressings

I have  three scars but the one that is the worst is the one near my foot, that keeps opening up whenever I knock my foot.

It all started when I dropped a light bulb on the floor and the glass nicked my leg and also nicked a vein near my foot. My doctors have been very helpful and given me some special cream to apply three times a day, which does help but the last time it took about four months to heal, but the dressings are so big I have to wear long skirts or trousers so the dressing does not show and I cannot shower because the dressing comes off.  But both the doctors and nurse are very kind and they are alway trying different things to help it heal.
