Thanks for posting your query.
It seems that you have a widespread skin infection which has affected upto your muscles. Such a persistent infection needs systemic antibiotics according to the culture sensitivity of the wound swab.
Repeated aseptic dressings are needed under medical supervision to avoid any superadded infections. A careful monitoring of antibiotic doses is needed according to the response to the medicines.
Please consult a dermatologist for the proper prescription antibiotics so that adequate healing can take place. Local application of ointments will not help you much.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
