Washing you stump

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

A little tip/ trick for you....

When washing your legs make sure you only use a downward movement, especially if you suffer from ingrowing hairs. (We use this method when washing patients legs that suffer from leg ulcers and if you want I can get some research to support this).

I have also been using epaderm/ hydromol to wash my legs with, and is working wonders!
