hello

I have an area of prurigo nod. that I was picking with a pointed tweezer. The tweezer punctured me in the elbow very deeply and in 10 hours, I had a raging infection. I am on Keflex 500 mg BID x 10 days, and it is helping. I am worried I will get the lesion deep into my elbow and doctors will not know how to treat it. Can it be transfered by an instrument? What should be done if the infection continues after 10 days. Thank you.
