I broke my damn ankle! It hurts it itches and the cast is ugly (with a big red "heel") and embarassing. But the worst of all thoes has to be the itching! Its pretty tight and everytime I stick a pencil in to scratch it it bunches up the fabric on the inside and makes it even more uncomfotable then it already is! What do I dooo! Pleeease help me!
first off dont stick ANYTHING in your cast. second if you have a fiberglass cast you can use a blow dryer on cold to releive itching. also call your nurse if you turn blue or tingly, and they will recast you. I feel for you how did you break it? hope you feel better soon :)
The CastCooler will resolve the itch and odor problem by removing the moisture, typically from perspiration, that is trapped in the cast's lining. Visit www.castcooler.com
Speedy and comfortable recovery
Call the drs office and ask for the nurse. Ask her what to do about the itching.
As for the cast, why don't you get your friends to sign it? If you don't have friends, then you can paint it.
I would put baby powder or baby cornstarch in my cast. It seemed to help me quite a bit. I wish you a speedy recovery!
The Castscratcher works great.
