Finding on day 2The initial finding can be seen on a video and another foto on the doccheck page.
Gangrenous pyoderma is a painful skin disease with extensive ulceration and dying of the skin, usually just at one site. The disease is not caused by infections (therefore, antibiotics have no effect), but it probably is an overshooting reaction of the immune system (autoimmune disease). Thus, it is treated with immunosupressive drugs like e.g. glucocorticosteroids, salicine-sulfapyridie (Dapson) or Cyclosporin A.Gangrenous pyoderma only partly concurs with other underlying diseases, e.g. Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, rheumatic diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, vasculitis, leukemia, and chronic hepatitis. Treatment: First high-dosed cortisone, and no or scarce debridement.
