Hit and cut an area near my ankle one month ago. Now it's still a little swollen and hurts when I press it. Should I go to the hospital?
I have a rash right above my ankle, I had two little cuts on my ankle that itched & over the past two weeks is has become a rash that itches horribly.
Rash from scratching: I suspect that the rash (at least in part) is probably from your scratching that area which itches you. So have you tried either covering it to make it more difficult to scratch, put some moisturizing cream on to tone down the itch, or something over the counter such as Bacteen which has a temporary cooling/numbning effect? Your doctor can prescribe more potent creams to get you to not scratch itSee 1 more doctor answer

I got bit by something last night and this morning and all the bites have swollen up into hard lumps. Even those on the face. What do I need to do? I cut one open on my ankle and the swelling reduced, but is still there. That's not an option on face.
Stop cutting.: Don't be cutting things open on your ankle unless you know what you are doing. The safest thing to do is seek professional help.See 2 more doctor answers

I cut the top of my foot a week ago am on antibiotics as its in but me foot is really swollen up to my ankle how long should it take to reduce?
Cellulitis: If your swelling is increasing or unchanged after 3-4 days on antibiotics then you may need a stronger or different type of antibiotic to treat the bacteria. Also depending on the degree and location of the swelling, you may need more intervention than just local antibiotics. You should call your doctor and describe the symptoms.See 1 more doctor answer
