I always find tiny bits of "stuff" in the
fluid in the lesions...the fluid that hardens
into something that looks like polyurethane varnish..
or shellac. Shiny. Hard. Not a garden variety
"scab" one sees with normal healing flesh. Not to mention
the fact that "scabs" don't launch fibers.
I assumed that the tiny "bits" were destroyed
skin tissue. However..since when do skin cells arrange themselves
into such angular shapes? The tiniest visible
bits..tend to be 3 sided "stars". Then, larger "star"
shapes..that appear to be gathering themselves
into larger pieces.
Then the larger pieces appear to be aggregating into
"sheets" [bottom of pic, center..] Am I observing the
process in which the liquid in the lesion becomes the
shiny, "plastic" covering?
perhaps..I am not seeing "skin tissue broken into bits"..
but rather..nano scale bits being assembled into angular
structures that become large enough to see with a microscope...and eventually to the eye.
