Keflex, on birth control, bumped leg, swollen leg, red bumps on leg, infection

my grandma, age 82, was on keflex for a uti , she bumped her leg, which immediately swelled, a week later the lump on her leg was still very large, fluid filled, like a huge purple blister , and the area all around is warm and red. she went to hospital and was told she had a severe infection, how can bumping her leg with no open wound become infected?
