A myHSteam Member asked a question πŸ’­

He knows all about the condition and doesn't care...but I still feel like reading and photos are different than being in an intimate situation with me.

Has Anyone Experienced Swelling And Tenderness Around A Wound?
A myHSteam Member asked a question πŸ’­

The skin around my wound hurts when I touch it. Currently, I have a wound dressing on it and surgical tape to keep it in place. Tape isn't on tigkt. I'm also not currently on antibiotics and I've been applying a heating pad then castor oil on the affected areas. Swelling seems to go down, but I'm not sure if the swelling and pain is a symptom of an infection that I should get checked out.

I'm finally starting to see progress as the swelling has reduced. I'm currently taking Keflex antibiotic 4x a day.
