I was being treated for a pilonidal Cyst. I had healed too quickly and the doctor had to reopen the wound a little bit. He reopened the wound and a gauze pad was put over it to the cover the reopened hole. Later that night I being a stubborn individual proceeded to move air conditioners and play with my dogs. I went outside to walk one of my dogs when I realized that there was a damp spot on my thighs. I checked the area and blood soaked through the gauze pad, my underwear and my jeans. I being a teenager washed the underwear but left the jeans sitting on my bedroom floor. One and a half weeks went by and I went to go wash those blood-soaked jeans. Upon picking up the jeans I saw that their was a hole in the denim the size of my hand. I looked for the missing piece of denim and it was not there. I am curious about the corrosive properties of Blood, and has anyone heard of this happening? I have asked people I know and no one has given me any insight into this. I am very curious to see if this can happen and if it can I wish to know if it is a regular property of blood or if it means something else.

Thank you in advance,

Sounds like your dog started chewing on the blood spot on your jeans. They like to do that.
