Today marks 4 wks since my 4 level ACDF. The collar has rubbed a spot raw on my neck. The NS's RN told me to go get the collar refitted and ask the medical supply place what to do. Has anyone else dealt with skin irritation?
Since I had to wear the collar while waiting for the RN to call back, I used a waterproof transparent dressing and applied antibiotic ointment. The relief was almost immediate!
