i have deep carpet burn on my left knee. i fell over yesterday trying to get away from a wasp and landed with all my weight on my left knee. baby is fine but im worried it might be getting infected!
i REALLY dont want to take oral antibiotics unless i really have to. does anyone know what the signs are if carpet/rug burn is getting infected?
i know for other things like cuts etc that redness and heat are a sign but is it the same for a burn?
right now its very hot around the wound, regardless of the face that i have a fan on it and its also very red around it too. there isnt any puss, however there are slight wet parts/clear liquid coming from small parts of it.
Sorry to hear you had a fall, damn wasps! Infection is rather unlikely as long as you disinfect the wound immediately. Also, try not to put band-aid, let it dry up instead. Go get checked out if it persists being hot, oozes liquid or if any puss appears. Better safe than sorry.
yeah ive been keeping it clean and kept it open to the air and its pretty much completely scabbed over during the night,its just the edges that still gave to heal n the redness n heat that are making me worry.
