Oh Great Groupthink, I come to you again in my need. As you are the fount of all wisdom and knowledge, and also that you have strong stomachs, I humbly beseech you for an opinion on Gross Things.
Last week, I had a wart burned. Now, the area is entirely disgusting. It has gone black! It .... oozes. I've been keeping it bandaged, and washing it well between dressing changes, but I don't know if that's the RIGHT thing to be doing. Should I be leaving it out in the air instead? I mean, I don't really want anyone to see it, so that's part of the reason to keep it decently hidden away. But is this normal? Is my hand necrotizing? Will my thumb fall off? What does gangrene look like? Am I overthinking this?
Help me, Groupthink. You're my only hope.
