We went to c d doctor also. After two dressing's it was ok without blister's but on 23 Jan 2017 she got blister's. We again went to d doctor. He peeled off the skin coz he said they are infected. Since then till now there's no improvement. We visit everyday to d doctor for dressing but no change. She cannot walk and she's having pain also if she tries to walk. A yellow patch had developed on her foot, then it turned red and now the same patch has turned black. And today a sort of honey like jel emerged out of it.
Kindly suggest what to do??

Tonight when I was cooking some potatoes to mash them, i did a bad thing and put one piece in my mouth to see if it was done. It was but it was to hot and went down and stuck in my throat for 10 seconds and burned it. Has pain and is producing lots of mucus. The mucus is so much and thick running down that it makes me choke and gag. Doctor said can't do anything for the mucus that gags me. Body will have to heal it, then the mucus will go away. it is so bad that i can't sleep because of mucus. Is there anything I can do? Please.
