Suggest Medication For An Infected Wound On The Ankle
If there is abscess, it needs to be drained. Do an ultrasound scan confirm
Thanks for the query.
If there is pus collection, it can form an abscess which usually requires Incision and drainage surgery. A snack opening is made to remove the pus.
Antibiotics usually clear infection which has not yet become abscess. If an abscess is treated only with antibiotics, it could either get organised and cured or can further damage joints and cause sepsis or blood infection.
Better to get an ultrasound scan of that region to look for such abscess and if it has already organised.
I hope I have answered your query.
I will be available to answer your follow up queries.
