Thanks for the tip. I'll definitely try the honey. And yes, I'm using Neosporin with pain reliever in it. He thought that was as good as anything he could prescribe.

Honey for pain relief: Mix 3 Tbs. of honey in boiled water and drink. Honey has natural pain-relieving powers.

Also, it is antibacterial and antiseptic, have you talked to your doc about using it as a salve to help fight the infection?

I hope you get better soon!

Thanks for all the support.

My elbow is still infected, but does look a little better. It is still keeping me awake. My pain/rehab doc wants me to take antibiotics for two more weeks. I see him again in three weeks & if it's not healed or at least close, he wants me to go back to the plastic surgeon & have the burn cut out. I guess time will tell.

Sorry to hear about your burn, hopefully they can get the infection cleared quickly and give you something to help with the pain.

I'm sorry you are feeling so bad and couldn't sleep. I would suggest calling the Dr.'s office when it opens. They may have suggestions for you or get better pain meds :)

Pussy infections are not good. I'm glad that you are seeing your doctor and getting antibiotics for it.

The burn on my arm that was finally healing has become infected. My elbow hurt a lot more Monday & I had a fever of 102.5. By Tuesday the burn was completely pussy. My PT drained it & got the doctor to order antibiotics. My doc measured it yesterday & has no idea what could have happened. It is completely pussy again & I've had a fever all day. Now, even with Lunesta I can't sleep.
