Popped welt with blackness and sore, surrounding skin dry and peeling. Could it be something serious?
I had a little red welt with a white head on my knee a few days ago. I poped it like a zit and some puss came out. Not a lot but i thought nothing of it. The welt remained and a day or two later a red sweled line extended from it. Then the line doubled by the next day. Its about an inch long. The welt that i poped now has black on it and its a little sore. The skin around it dryed and peeled off a little. Im wondering if it could be just a bug bite or something thats not that big of a deal or something that could be serious and have it checked out. Thank you.
Hello i think what u are suffering is only abrasion due to injury.in abrasion firsrt becomes erythematous.then pus comes out then becomes black scab .then gets suvsided.as the knee is folding area it gets more pain
