Hello Ashley,
I am responding much later than your posting, but I hope this still reaches you. Have you ever tried local RAW honey or bee pollen? Bacteria cannot survive in the presence of raw honey products!! Something about what those little tiny bees can do!!! If your not allergic to honey or bee's, try looking into it, or ask your Dr. You can use honey products externally or internally. Best if it's raw.

Hi,
How are you? Do you still experience the symptoms you mentioned in your post? Can you elaborate on the unknown bacterial infection you had? Were you able to see your doctor? To determine the underlying microorganism responsible in your leg infection,  culture of the wound discharge may help. Also,burn scar tissue lacks the usual oil glands found in normal skin and can lead to dry skin which is prone to itching. Hydration and intake of antihistamine medications may help. However, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
