I recently tripped and fell during a run, scraping up the lower palm of my hand . The abrasion is about 1.5 -2 square. I tried to clean it fairly well once I could. I ve been using antibiotic cream and covering it with bandages, and after about 24 hours I cleaned it some more, applied antibiotic spray and new bandages, but it continues to ooze, so I m changing bandages every 2-4 hours (12 layer gauze ). Is it at the point I should go see a doctor to have it properly cleaned/cared for? Thanks.
