Help me heal my hotspot!!!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm going crazy!!! I had a hotspot on my ski boot that I was trying to correct myself for the entire month of February. I tried doughnut pads, duct tape, weather stripping, silly putty, you name it but when I finally developed a bad infection on my ankle,(staph) I had to finally concede to the doctor for a fix. I got a shot in the tush, was on cephalaxin for 10 days, had my boots streched out a little, and thought I was on the mend until Sunday night, when the infection came back with a vengance. Now I can't even get my snowboard boots on. I called the Doc today, and he changed my script to Amoxicillian.

I've been using bacatracin/zinc ointment, hydrogen peroxide and alcohol and nothing is helping.

We only have maybe a week or two left to ski here in Michigan, and I was really hoping to get a few more runs in.

Any suggestions to clear this thing up would be greatly appreciated!!!!


Thanks!

Stay out of the boots until it all heals, Snowmiser. You don't want to restart that infection yet again. Come up north after that. We'll be skiing until April.

Once again, I think I'm going to take your advice on this Kneale! I've been trying to fight it, but I'm loosing, so I mine as well give in and give it some rest. My friends at Alpine have been calling me the "gladiator"! I can ski, I just can't walk!! But at this point, I've got to listen to what my body is telling me.

Maybe I'll see ya later this month!!!

Thanks for the encouragement!
