It seems that you might be having non healing cut over the knuckle.
As you have gone for enough antibiotics, what is now required is proper dressing.
Go for proper dressing with removal of debris with proper cleaning.
If it is possible get dressing done by your doctor.
After proper dressing within few days cut will be healed.
Ok and take care.
