Six weeks ago I fell downstairs; my shin took the brunt of the accident and as a result a blood blister appeared. The nurse burst this but it got infected and despite being on three lots of antibiotics it looks like once again I have an infection. I have a severe gaping wound which oozes blood and other matter and despite attending regularly to have this dressed at the drs the injury still continues to be red and sore.
I agree with you pattishan it does sound like it could be a bone fragment infection or undiagnosed diabetes. I have diabetes and don't heal well so I would definately ask about that. I would also ask the doctor to do an MRI to check for a bone or muscle infection. Good luck my dear sounds like you need a specialist in this matter. I will be thinking about you for sure.
