... I can barely walk. Would I need an antibiotic to keep Infection from setting in?
26 Jan 2013
I dont know that you would need an antibiotic for this. Is there an open wound or laceration in the area? If it is just a closed injury to the joint or bone or the ligaments then I wouldnt think an antibiotic would be needed. You should consult your Dr for an evaluation. If you are still having trouble with an injury that happend several years ago, it needs to be evaluated by a doctor to see why it is still giving you grief especially if it is getting worse and keeping you from walking on it. You may just want to go to Urgent Care.
