I am still wrapping Izzy's leg with the mini bandage, but it finally occurred to me this week that I should probably stop using the white lotion. White lotion is a lead acetate product that serves as an irritant to the skin which prevents over granulation. Since there is no longer a hole in his leg and the skin has epithilialized, I should probably stop irritating it.
I don't feel comfortable going completely bandage free though, so I have switched out the white lotion in favor of a small smear of Biozide Gel, an antibacterial and antifungal goo.
If that looks good after a week, I'll try to leave the Vet Wrap off for several hours and re-wrap each day. I'll be on Christmas vacation by that time so I'll be at the barn for longer periods each day. Hopefully I'll be able to see any swelling before it becomes a problem.
I'll keep you posted!
