Condition Presented:

The patient presented with severe necrosis of the skin and sub-cutaneous tissue after sustaining a Hyaloma tick bite, presumably one or two days prior to presentation.

Duration Of Photizo Treatment:

Phototherapy was done for 5 minutes, once a day, for a week and thereafter once every second day. The wound took, in total, 14 days to heal completely. The patient was kept on concurrent Cephalexin antibiotics and Carprofen anti-inflammatories

Treatment Performed:

Treatment and case study was done by Vetlight in Pretoria.

Condition After Photizo:

From the second day of phototherapy less fibrin and far less necrotic tissue formation was seen. There was good epithelialisation, resulting in far less scar tissue than expected. Overall, the wound healed faster and with less necrosis than was initially predicted.
