Hi, osteomyelitis is an infection of the bone, it needs to be scrapped and antibiotics are used for complete cure, So i advise you to consult an orthopedic surgeon for diagnosis and treatment. Don't worry it is completely curable, and nothing to worry, but the thing is as it deep seated he needs to be done by a senior doctor. Thank you.
