I woke up this morning to horrible looking skin around my neck and much of it peeling off and being very painful. I went back to the doctor in the box and now I have the bandages. I guess it has to do with the stage of healing or the way it's progressing because this dr told me to keep a dressing on it, changed daily, for a week now instead of leaving it open to the air. I wanted to let you know since this is what you suggested to begin with. I asked about the change in approach and the nurse told me that due to it being a scalding burn and the initial blistering, it needed air until the blisters were gone. I don't know but my clothes rubbing on it all week sure didn't feel good. The bandages preventing that sure helps even though it is still quite sore.
