Boils on skin due to dettol allergy ,problem is persisting after consulting, please give your suggestion

Had a cut and bruised knee after a fall durign a game of cricket. Cleaned it wth dettol antiseptic and put betadine ointment on the same for a few days. Now the skin surrounding the cut has developed boils (like from burns) and the boils have watery fluid, which comes out when they break. and this is leading to its spread in the skin. Consulted a skin specialist, but the problem is persisting. plz guide. Regards Leya

You shall need antibiotics I gues. If it is infection then it does take some time.
