Wounds not healing
Hello There, I had a small scratch on my left foot, a month ago. And, as usual, after a day it becomes a wound. But now it has been 31 days and still it's not healed. (It seems that it is being healed but again puss comes out. And this is being repeated). I am not taking any medication. Is it alarming?? Thanks in Advance.

Hello the wound is getting infected repeatedly its bettr proper dressing is done and appropriate antibiotics should be given and if the wound is on the joint it will take more time to heal consult a general surgeon or orthopedician for further evaluation and treatment.
