    Tom,

    Thanks for keeping us updated in the healing process. This scar is barely noticeable at this point and will continue to get even better I am sure. Great job and great thread!

If it look like its getting better, let the fishes system work...if you see any white areas, or reddish swollen areas I would try swabbing.... don't dilute. It does look like its recovering well on its own.

    hth,

    so just a shout out to Al for helping me save this guy. at over 6.5 inches I really didn't want to give up on him. thought sure this was a HITH issue, but Al called this immediately as a classic localized bacterial infection.
    after about a week I decided to swab the area ( Al's advice) with Hydrogen Peroxide, and beyond that just water changes. (think I have heard of that somewhere, Lol)
    here are a few pics of the progress to bring the comparison all to one post.
    Before the (pimple) this is what he looked like

    then the pimple came and went and the following day this happened

    then a week later and after swabbing
    039.jpg

    another week past
    050.jpg

    and Today 5 weeks after the issue he is still healing
