My foot itched like crazy and during this week my doctor allowed me to start soaking my foot. My stitches were still in. Yep, that also meant I could take a shower. Talk about living out my dreams! Soaking my foot helped to relieve the soreness of my foot. I soaked in Epsom salts and peroxide. Afterwards, I applied lotion only to the bottom half of my foot to avoid infecting my wounds. It did not work and my feet were peeling like crazy from lack of moisture.
These pics reveal a close up of my 3rd and 5th toe corns as well. They were very hard and dry during this week. My bunion is gone and my big toe is still straight. This is the week I started day dreaming about how all of my shoes were going to fit better.
This side view depicts the bunion area that is bright red and seemingly inflamed. My doc prescribed me stronger antibiotics just to be sure I wasn't developing an infection. He cut away one stitch to let some fluid out and taped the area with surgical tape.
