Hello and thanks for writing in at HCM
I read your queries in detail and would like to help you out. It seems that you have developed an abscess
at your elbow which is creating problem for you. You have to immediately consult a Orthopedics or General Surgeon
, You might need Incision and Drainage
procedure, which helps in draining out all the pus and helps in speedy healing of the wound.
Hot of the area is due to local tissue inflammation. Pain and itching is due to the infection material that is collected at the site. As you are taking antibiotic now there is no issue of culture sensitivity. Continue the antibiotic course and if possible take I.V. doses.
This is not a contagious disease but you have to take precaution and regular Aseptic dressing.
At last consult your surgeon ASAP and get rid from your pain and problem.
