The scrape on my leg doesn't seem to be getting better. It has been 10 days. Is this normal?
It is very painful and I have been on antibiotics for 3 days. I don't know what else to do but clean with peroxide and apply neosporin and also aloe gel. Any other suggestions? This is so frustrating!

mr. cool
i would have it amputated pronto.

Stop using peroxide. Use soap and water then dap dry. Apply neosporin then apply preathable bandage. If conditions persist or worsen contact a doctor. Test you sugar levels for diabetes...good luck...

Are you a diabetic? If you are this could be a reason why. If you are not you may want to get checked for it. Also if the leg does not seem to be getting any better check back with your doctor the antibotics may not be working for the infection you have or you may have accquired some other type of infection in the wound. Call him ASAP. Good luck.

happy bunny
it is infected you mite have to cut your leg off go to your docter right now

charlie's angel
If it is painful and/or swollen, you should go to the doctor. With cuts and scrapes there is always a chance of infection.

yeah, 10 days is a LONG time for just a scrap. Have you been seen already for this? Are those old antibiotics from a previous trip to the doctor?
Keep it clean, keep it exposed to the air as much as you can. Is there puss/ooze from the wound or red around the scraped area? That would indicate an infection. (and your antiobiotics are not working)
My favorite healing aid is Lansinoh, it is actually made for breastfeeding moms but trust me, this stuff is AWESOME! you can buy it at any store that sells breastfeeding supplies (even grocery stores) and/or has a Pharmacy.

If you are getting worried, go to the doctors.

A symptom of Diabetes is wounds that do not heal. Something you might want to look into.

Bad Kitty!
You should be rechecked by the doctor. There is such a thing as "MRSA" (methycillin-resistent stapholococcus aureus), that doesn't respond to routine antibiotics and can become seriously worse.

Quit using the peroxide just keep it clean and try to let air get to it. just plain soap and water. the antibiotics should be helping soon .If not then back to the doctor in a week. Make sure you take all the medicine.If the the scrape is on the tibia (the chin).it will take a little longer than usual because it has little skin.....

Stop cleaning it with peroxide. Peroxide will keep it raw. Use soap and water only. Don't put anything else on it unless a doctor says it's ok. Some creams make them worse instead of better. (I didn't know this until last summer when one of my kids got a scrape and I was putting a cream on it. It was getting worse instead of better. The cream wasn't designed for that type of scrape.)


Keep it clean and dry,using soap and water is the best,peroxide every other day.(peroxide can kill healing tissue) sporadic use is OK......DO NOT use an ointment or cream on a deep or penetrating type of wound or injury!!!!!These type of products DON"T allow the wound to drain and will keep the bad bacteria in the body.CLEAN & DRY!!!!!!! I've seen quite a few patients that thought they knew better and put an antibiotic ointment on their wounds and wound up in surgery for an I&D (irrigation & debridement) Not a fun surgery to have...it usually requires packing being placed into the now larger wound cavity and needs to be changed daily!!! GET MEDICAL ATTENTION ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
