Re: Burn infection
this could just be the 'normal" healing process depending on just how deeply the burn went down into the underlying tissues.from your description it really sounds like you have a second degree burn there.if this is "just' red,and kind of hard to move,things are probably okay.once skin has been burned,as it heals,the skin naturally tends to tighten up.you could start doing just a bit of extra movements with it to stretch that new skin a bit at a time.BUT,if there is ANY type of drainage at this point or any pus pockets or oozing going on,i would most definitely have your doc evaluate it.anytime you actually have a burn over any joint area,it just makes things a bit more difficult and painful when you move it.this would be considered normal for where your burn is andthe depth of it.if at anytime this just doesn't 'feel' right or look right,just see your doc and have it looked at.but this really does 'sound' normal to me.when in doubt,just seek out your docs help tho.hope it feels better soon for you.let me know how thing sare going.FB
