Cause: Generally mating flights and fights, accident-prone Weyrling Dragons.

Symptoms:
Wounds, likely to be dirty and differing in severity. The wound may be gushing, oozing, or spurting ichor. Rider and Dragon likely to be distressed to some degree.

Treatment:

  1. If the Dragon is in pain, then ask a Gold to dampen the pain and still the movement. Involve the Rider. Ask the Rider for details of the injury. If this is the result of a mating flight, make sure you start handing the Rider skins of wine. Take control of the situation, but never forget to ask a Rider first for permission to approach their lifemate: big Dragon, in pain, equals a dangerous combination.
  2. Clean wound with Redwort.
  3. Slather with Numbweed Remove any dirt, foreign articles etc. with forceps.
  4. If ichoring has not stopped, apply a pressure bandage to the wound. A pressure bandage is merely a pad of bandaging material that is applied over the wound and pressed tightly in place. If this soaks through, it should not be removed; instead, a second bandage should be applied on top of the first. In most cases, this will be enough to stop ichoring.
  5. Apply more Numbweed.

Recovery:
For minor injuries usually a day or two is all that is required. Numbweed will help clot the ichor, and so the wound will heal quickly. For more moderate injuries, usually no more than a sevenday is required. Obviously, if the injury is in a place that would be exacerbated, such as under the straps, on the wingsails, they will need to rest longer.
