Cut on chest, breast and pelvic area, been sleeping, hallucinations. Help?

I have a large slice/cut on my chest. It goes from my upper left brest area diagonally down all the way to my right pelvic area. The wound is about 2 feet long in length and the depth of the cut varys. At the worst part theres about a 12 inch area thats probably a quarter inch deep and spread apart by about a half inch. Ive been doing my best to keep the wound clean but i cant seem to keep it from infection. I also havnt eaten in about 4 days and i have been sleeping very spiradically for the last week. My biggest worry is that i have been hallucinating over the last 2-3 days, can anything ive described cause me to have hallucinations?

Hi there ~

I understand your situation as much as you describe, however you need to see a doctor immediately since this is something that needs to be looked at. I hope you walk into the nearest emergency room and see a doctor. You may have hallucinations due to having infection of your blood that has spread to your brain. I hope you understand, also I have the faintest idea as to why you have not eaten for 4 days or the cut or the sleep issues. If you see a doctor in the emergency room please be frank about what happened, even if it was abuse.

Take care and have a good day!

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
Its not clear to my understanding that why with such a long cut you have not seen a doctor. You should have done it immediately.
Secondly regarding your hallucinations, in case if you are not having preexisting mental illness then it is the sleep deprivation and the pain of the cut that is causing you to hallucinate.
If you are having a pre-existing mental illness then it is possible that there is a recurrence.
What ever be the issue you need to see a doctor in ER to help you with the wound first. It could get infected and then there could be a serious problem. Moreover if it is not taken care of then cosmetically also it will be a problem.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.

Wish you good health,
