I am trying to wrap my sore after triple antibiotic ointment and putting gauze. I'm not so good at it and it is in an awkward position on my thigh. anyone have any tips? should I seek a personal care assistant or a nurse that can visit me?

      @ChrisC2693 does the boil ease hurt if it is infected?

      https://www.cvs.com/shop/cvs-health-extra-absorbent-adhesive-pads-6in-x-6-in-5-ct-prodid-2340047 There are two different sizes, I use the larger one for bad flares and the medium size if it's only one draining spot. I use boil ease when it's fevered but not wanting to drain. It has a numbing agent that helps relieve the pain of swelling and helps it to drain faster. It stays on all day, I use it especially when I have to work that day.

      I get flare ups on my inner thigh sometimes. The best thing I found are antibacterial bandages from CVS. If you'd like I can send you a link to check them out. Worth it for the bad drainage days.
