Default New realism tattoo infected

So i just got half my sleeve done and it was brutal long sittings over 2 days. I had no choice cause the artist is almost impossible to get in and very expensive but it was worth it. I sat 6 hours then 10 hours at a convention.

Anyways i got a free box of h2Ocean there wich is supposed to be good aftercare and buddy used second skin on my arm and i went home. The next day i had a scab where the tape was cause my skin didn't like the tape so i took it off like a idiot.

I started using the foam soap to wash it but i messed up huge and caked the moisturizer on the tattoo wich it says in CAPS to use a small amount. So my arm was super damp and my tattoo scabbed BAD , 80% of massive sleeve!! Its been almost a week and its so bad its not even funny i will give a picture. I been leaving it alone now using nothing to let it dry and for the pus i got doxycycline.
Am i doing the right thing letting it just scab to heal? Cause the scab is 80% of the massive tattoo

The only person you should be seeking advice from is a doctor. Since you have medication it sounds like you've already seen one. Just do what they say.

And that didn't happen because you used too much aftercare, or took off the second skin too early.

Wow looks rough. As mentioned you should listen to your doc first and foremost, but if I were in your situation I wouldn't put anything else on it besides antibiotics or whatever and let the scab dry out and fall off on own.

The doctor is actually not a very good one lol. He was a specialist and i happened to be there. Im on vacation in the mountains haha. I dunno what to do. Does polysporin work? I dunno what else i will use. I stopped using the h2O aftercare stuff though. You think the green foam soap would be ok? Just dab it on dry like instructions say then get a paper towel moist and dab it off.

You put the soap on to dry skin and dab it off with moist towel? What the fuck, never even heard of stuff like that.. Iíve always used and told all my customers to wash it twice a day with HOT water and just normal soap and that takes everything off that would scab. I donít even use anything on my own tattoos, just wash them twice and let the body do itís thing. Of course everybody is different. That still looks bad and only one that can really help you is a doctor, even any tattooer canít really help you.

I had some laser work that got infected on my leg. It wasnít huge so I managed it myself with tea tree antiseptic cream. If your tattoo has scabbed like that and itís producing puss you probably need a course of antibiotics prescribed by a doctor.

Antibiotics. You should alert your tattooer to what has happened, but at this point the only person you should be getting advice from is a doctor.
Getting on the antibiotics sooner will usually make the tattoo heal up better in the end, you might still need some touch ups though.

Take the antibiotics and donít mkss a day, finish them as directed.

Leave the tattoo alone. Try to protect it as best you can when you sleep. Let the scabs fall off without any help from you.
