Comment from: dlorenscheit, 25-34 Male (Patient) Published: July 19

I was stung in the foot, but unaware that it was a sting ray. I continued to hobble around on the beach for awhile before heading back to take a shower. I took a hot shower and cleaned the area. I then put antibiotic ointment on the wound and covered it. 10 days passed and I noticed it wasn't getting any better, so I went to urgent care, they gave me some antibiotics. It has now been 17 days since the sting and the wound is still not healed. I will write back with more details of what's happened at a later date.
