Additional Details
MY MOM HAS SEEN IT SHE'S GOING TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT FOR 2MRO. i am still terrified. how do they diagnose it

take an analgesia which you are not allergy with...it is infected..you should go to the doctor before it will get worse, infection is aserious matter if it is not treated with the right antibiotics...i am sure you are starting to have a fever already and it is one of the signs..they will not give you a shots if you are allergy with..they will do testing before they will give it to you especially the antibiotics...or will observe you for some reactions..tell the dotors all the medicines who are allergy with..it is important to avoid another problems to arise during your treatment...

tell your mom, and go to the doctor. let them know all thats been happening since you fell of your bike, and tell them how youre allergic to shots. theyll know what to do.

Go see a doctor or talk to your parents. How are you allergic to shots? Thats kind of impossible to be allergic to ALL shots. Maybe you need to talk to your mom or dad, Im sure you are allergic to something, but not 'shots'. You should know these things before you see a dr, as whatever they put in a shot they can also give you orally- although you would still be allergic to it.

they can give you medication w/o giving you shots. so don't worry. and yahoo answers is not the best place for this kind of info. if its swelling where the purple is then its prolly just an absess of puss.

It may be infected, but don't let that freak you out, everything is OK! :) But you should see a doctor: contaminated wounds heal by themselves but infected wounds don't. Something has to get rid of the infection. Your doctor will treat the wound with topical antibiotics and generally take care of things. There's nothing to be afraid of; all of your drug allergies will be taken into account. Your doctor definitely won't give you anything that will make you have a seizure

EDIT: They will look at the wound to diagnose it.... if it is warm to the touch compared to nearby skin, if it has a smell, your vital signs, the general appearance. I'm guessing they will know just from that. There are tests that can confirm an infection and specify what kind of infection it is, for instance the doctor could take blood to see whether your white blood count is normal or take a culture of the bacteria in the sore. Nothing that will be done will hurt. Probably the most painful thing they might would do is take a blood sample. It will be fine I promise :)

I wouldnt worry two much. The worse that could happen is losing a leg, what do you need two for?

you have an infection and should have been cleaning the wound with water and peroxide to clean it, rubbing alcohol to kill germs, and a triple antibiotic like neosporin to help fight infection. it sound like it is to late for all that and you should go see your family physician to have it taken care of and they may give you antibiotic pills

Step1: Wet
Step2: Lather
Step3: Rinse
Step4: Amputate
Step5: PROFIT!!!!!
Step6: Repeat

instead of them giving you a shot, they might give you anti biotics pill form. tough luck.

First, breathe and calm down, getting upset will make things worse.

It does sound like you have an infection. I don't know if you'll have to get a needle, probably not, likely oral antibiotics.

Make sure to tell the doctors what you are allergic to when you go.

That being said definitely go, and soon before the infection worsens! Get better soon!!

Graham O
Sounds like you have an infection. When you say you are allergic to shots, is it more correct to say that you are allergic to the antibiotic in them? Many people are allergic to some forms of antibiotic, but not necessarily all of them, and this being the case, your doctor should be able to prescribe an antibiotic that may not cause you any reaction.

You should definitely see your doctor anyway. Infections that you have had for two weeks could become potentially more serious, and if left untreated, and if they don't clear up by themselves could lead to blood poisoning ....or worse.

Ask your mom is the only advice I can tell you.. It could be infected?

Liz K
First of all try not to be scared. The best thing you can do for it is use peroxide and neolsporin after your shower and before you go to bed. The peroxide will burn but blow on it a little and it wont be so bad. Be sure to drink plenty of water and take a vitamin every day to keep up you immune system. I hope everything goes well.

its not the 1800'S we;re living in, if its infected it can be cleared up within about 2 days, just tell your mom or a doctor. They're not going to give your a shot if your allerigic to them, porbably just oral anti-biotics

goodluck =]

Allergic to shots is another way to say terrified of them. You need to soak that knee in water and scrub the yuck off of it. If it is infected, the cut area will have a red ring around it. After you wash it, bandage it with clean, dry dressings. Change the dressing everyday and put something like Neosporin on it. If you do have to go to the doctor because of infection, you will probably get some anitbiotics by pill. They don't do shots for that anymore very often.

The doc will probably just give you antibiotics or tablets for inflamation, RELAX... :D

Purple is a bruise and is normal, Fever is your problem, however it's low grade so it's probably fighting slight infection, sensitive because it's a knee. AND probably not allergic to shots, just a certain KIND of shot. If your fever gets worse (above 101.5) then go in otherwise just let it heal. If you did go in, and it was infected the would most likely give you oral antibiotics, don't see a need for a shot here.

The number of exclamation points doesnt make the situation seem any more urgent then the people who limit it to 1.

Rofl, youve never got a cut before havent you?

The Professor
You may not need a shot at all. They usually can give you antibiotic pills and ointment..

didnt u just break ur ulna bone 2 weeks ago?

Go to a doctor immediatly. Tell them everything you wrote in this question, and tell them that you are allergic to shots. They will know what to do, they are professionals! The longer you wait, the worse it will get, so go!

Yurok Warrior
you need to goto the dr and tell them everything you said. especially about the shot. And no one is allergic to shots they are allergic to what they are getting injected with. a shot is just a needle made of sterelized metal, if you seizure out everytime you have a shot it is anxiety and you will be fine if you calm down. talk to the doc tell him your fears and worries and they will develop a plan to help you. If you don;t do anything you will lose the leg eventually if it is that badly infected.

John L
First, go to the Doctor. You don't need to do anything other than that.
Second, learn to spell.

Good luck!

Riding your bike 2 sundays ago? It was only 3 weeks ago you broke your leg and needed an ambulance. That's an awful quick recovery, no?
