Hi Bluebean, I read your other post about the 2 hoglet’s, and can’t advise you there, but this sound like a different hog. It must have been awful for you, but I should imagine if he’s on salt baths and antibiotics you should be covered. You are also helping by removing the offenders. I can’t quite remember, but what was the NHS using on people to remove septic and nasties in wounds? I think it was some kind of maggot! You are doing your very best. Good luck.
