My boots. They’re special boots that keep my lymphedema controlled. About 15 straps on them.
I’m.very itchy tonight with these damned things on. Itchy itchy itchy! And I have to wear them all night. Blrgh. I wear them every other night usually.
Hyratel, that’s pretty much it, yeah. I had a few bad bouts with cellulitis a few years ago and the lymph vessels were damaged.to.the point of non functioning. So, from the knees down, the lymph fluid collects and causes swelling, and if I’m not careful, I get skin lesions and water blisters.
The boots force fluid up past my knees while I’m.sleeping. the inside of the them.is like special.foam eggcrate material, so they put pressure all over combined with pushing to.move fluid up.
When my legs are super itchy, it means I have bad swelling, so the boots go.on for a longer period of time.
