Welcome at HCM.

If scar is blue & open wound is healed then she should not worry.She should take some supplements vitamin E preparation ,vitamin C preparation .This will help in strengthening the collagen & heal the wound.

Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Vaibhav Gandhi's  Response

Thanks for writing to Healthcare magic,

I have studied your case,
Septic knee is very common you have to see weather there is any residual infection post injury .
If pain swelling and redness persist you can conclude that there is certain infection inside ,and must see orthopaedic surgeon.
bluish discoloration may remain for three weeks.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
