I have a few spots of road rash that I currently have covered with Tegaderm. Part of the whole concept of Tegaderm seems to be leaving it on for several days at a stretch to promote unaggrevated healing and reduced risk of infection.
Problem is, when I ride (nearly every day): 1) I get sweaty and 2)the wound oozes more. This usualy results in at least a "pouch" of fluid under the Tegaderm, and on occasion the fluid finds its way out one edge of the dressing and I have a little river of pus-y, bloody goo running down my leg. Sorry for the gross imagery.
So the question is, should I stick with trying to make the Tegaderm last several days, or change it after each ride?
