I am on PD for over seven months now and there is not a single day I had been without bandage. My nurses advised me to stick to it. Even with that, I seem to have caught some bacteria and had to go through a course of medicines.
Currently there is some flesh that has come out (I believe it is called proud flesh). Every day, after clean up, I apply gentamycin cream on that and put a bandage and then, cover it with a stickman belt (even if I am home), though I wish to keep it open and let it dry.
