You should see a doctor. There are a multitude of possibilities for why this is not healing-for example, you could have a skin infection called cellulitis from something getting into the skin from the car accident. There could even be a foreign body from the accident causing inflammation. Please get this evaluated ASAP to determine what the problem is and get the correct treatment. Good luck!

If it is not getting better it may be cellulitis or a dvt. Both of those are treatable but can be dangerous. It would be a good idea to have your pcp evaluate you
