He took a sample of the fluids to do a culture just to be safe, but no news is good news I suppose! The ointment has really helped, the tearing fluids have pretty much stopped and the pinkish areas have settled down immensly! His cheek has been protected with the vaseline, and the damage to the skin from the fluids (prior to the Vaseline) has also cleared up with the exception of some minor hair loss. Yay! *happy dance*
