Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.

I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.

Pyoderma gangrenosum is predominantly a disease with superadded infection. It needs a proper control of infections. The best would be to get a culture and sensitivity of the wound and then start the antibiotic accordingly.
Further the problem of headache is understandable. If there a severe infection in the body then there is plenty of inflammatory mediators in the body leading to such headaches. You should take some mild pain killers like paracetamol to help with the headache.

Hope I am able to answer your concerns.

If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
