Posted on Mon, 25 May 2015
Question: I was bitten on the calf over two weeks ago. I had three stitches in the worst bite.
My leg is still swollen and bruised and bleeding.
Should I seek further medical attention?

I should have said that I was prescribed two anti-biotics.

Dear Ms

Thanks for providing clinical photograph. There is evidence of Cellulitis in view of surrounding swelling and oedema. It will require clinical assessment and further management.
I would suggest you to consult your Physician for further clinical examination and assessment.

Wishing you and your family a very happy and healthy life.
