hk doctors tend to give you 3 days medication. I got 5 days. Sometimes its hard to tell what you need. Some visiting scottish doctor said I should've gotten 10 days.

Not sure but I think the constant alcohol events doesn't help. I hate to think that the occasional binge interferes with the healing process. HK is almost the tropics though so we get all sorts of bacterial and fungal stuff coming out.


Uh...yeah. Alcohol will fuck with some Antibiotics big time.

Having lived in SE Asia and tropical Australia previously I've seen people lose extremities/large chunks of tissue from infections on quite a few occasions....so thats why I'm a tad twitchy. :)

hm... I'm reluctant but maybe I should see a doctor and get 5 more days of antibiotics. Its been 2 months, saw a lot of improvement in the first 5 days but the past 2 months have been slow to recover.

I think I recall some rpg system with 'wound infection' mechanics. Not sure if it was WFRP. I have read that in South Africa where it was dry 21st century medical experts recommend leaving wounds alone. Its in Europe where the temperate environment encourages wound infection.

Think I was scratching it in the past week so it fired up. Seems those scratches don't heal. Not diabetic last time I had a blood test in March.


Heer it ist...

Alcohol Consumption
Clinical evidence and animal experiments have shown that exposure to alcohol impairs wound healing and increases the incidence of infection (Gentilello et al., 1993; Szabo and Mandrekar, 2009). The effect of alcohol on repair is quite clinically relevant, since over half of all emergency room trauma cases involve either acute or chronic alcohol exposure (Rivara et al., 1993; Madan et al., 1999). Alcohol exposure diminishes host resistance, and ethanol intoxication at the time of injury is a risk factor for increased susceptibility to infection in the wound (Choudhry and Chaudry, 2006). Studies have demonstrated profound effects of alcohol on host-defense mechanisms, although the precise effects are dependent upon the pattern of alcohol exposure (i.e., chronic vs. acute alcohol exposure, amount consumed, duration of consumption, time from alcohol exposure, and alcohol withdrawal). A recent review on alcohol-induced alterations on host defense after traumatic injury suggested that, in general, short-term acute alcohol exposure results in suppressed pro-inflammatory cytokine release in response to an inflammatory challenge. The higher rate of post-injury infection correlates with decreased neutrophil recruitment and phagocytic function in acute alcohol exposure (Greiffenstein and Molina, 2008).

Back in the 80's I got into the Harn rules... PC's were far more likely to die from infection than from their injuries. Didn't seem particularly heroic, but I like the grittiness of it...

Harn is amazing (or at least it used to be).. so much source material it's overwhelming. I used to enjoy reading a lot of that stuff. Sadly I sold a ton of Harn stuff, really regret that now.
