This is a side view of the second eschar formed. It's very rough and misshapen with obvious swelling beneath the scab. The shape is different from the first go-around, and at first it seemed harder, but it is definitely not as thick from top to bottom, and there is a lot more watery pus draining from this one than the first. The pain has been deeper and more intense, but the process is going more quickly the second time around, and KavaKava herbs ease the pain enough to make it bearable. Up at the top, a new, smaller eschar is forming. It will go through the same process as the larger scab, on it's own time-table.
