Hello my name is***** and I am a board-certified pediatrician. I perform liquid nitrogen spray skin lesion removals routinely on many children, adolescents and young adults. I would be happy to help you. May I proceed or would you prefer I opt out for another physician?

It’s draining also

Thank you, ***** ***** what I can see in the picture you attached, it appears there is some redness, water blistering and skin peeling from the sites that you used the liquid nitrogen on. This is normal after treatment with liquid nitrogen, or cryosurgery. Essentially, you are inducing controlled frostbite on the skin tissue you are trying to eliminate. As long as the "draining" you are describing is clear, watery fluid and not blood or pus, this too can be normal. There isn't too much extra aftercare to do, other than keeping the involved skin area clean to avoid infection. You can gently cleanse the area with hydrogen peroxide and apply a little over the counter antibiotic ointment, such as bacitracin, 2x per day for a few days to promote healing. Otherwise, it's watchful waiting as your body heals itself.

Can I answer any other questions for you today?

Is that the same as Neosporin

Bacitracin is different that Neosporin, but you can use Neosporin as well, as long as it does not cause any irritation of your skin the way it can for some people. Can I help with anything else?

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
