Skin Issues on BK Stump

Recommended Posts


Earlier this year, I had a lot of problems with my stump changing shape after taking a strong steroid for a blood issue. I had to get a new socket fitting, OttoBock Harmony unit, wearing the liner, doing much better now. I still have some rough skin on the distal end of my stump, where all the problems were, I guess "dead" skin, and it's been starting to peel finally. I didn't think it would take this long. I've been using AdaptSkin on the area and on the rest of my stump. Any suggestions for dealing with this? Doesn't hurt.
