Hi, as per the details told by you, it might be a sort of class 1 cellulitis... Oral antibiotics like cephalexin or amoxyclav 625mg po tds for 5 days will be sufficient along with paracetamol serratiopeptidase combination drug... It s better to do cbc, x ray of that portion. And wound should be examined directly by a physician/treating surgeon..

Hi, the infection could be due to cellulitis or osteomyelitis. Further evaluation is required like cbc, blood culture, pus culture & sensitivity, xray, bone biopsy etc.., to confirm diagnosis. Kindly consult orthopedician...
