Hey everybody. I went swimming the other day at my friend's house, and as I was about to dive, the concrete on the sides of the pool gave me a bloody, dime-sized scrape on the top of my foot. It's been about three days, and it's red around the area, and has some drainage. In the middle, where the drainage is coming from, the skin is a pale yellowish tinge. i'm 14, so you know how moms of teenagers are. My mom would freak and rush me to the Dr. or ER. I've been cleaning it daily by applying triple antibiotic ointment to the area and putting a sterile Band-Aid on it. Any other advice? I've heard of iodized salt mixed with water in a solution makes for a good antiseptic, but I'm not sure. I want to be able to handle minor things like this on my own without my Mother freaking out. NOTE: THARE ARE NO RED STREAKS OF ANY SORT AROUND THE WOUND. Just the wound area has some redness, which is normal.
