Red Sore On My Lower Leg

Can eczema (i have been scratching) be the cause of a rather big open sore on the front of lower leg? Leg swollen tender and red around the wound.
Don't scratch!: I know... That is much easier said than done. But it is still true. If it is bad , see a dr. Anyway, you do need to prevent infection. Wash delicately w/ warm water. Use antibiotic cream, cover lightly. After that is resolved, obtain as effective as possible cortisone ointment to keep the itching under control. Eczema can be very difficult to eradicate, but it can be controlled. Don't scratch! ...Read more
I have a red dot on my lower leg and my leg is sore and stift at first I thought it was a black widow but I don't have any of the at toms except slight pain?
Bite or infection?: The red dot could be something as simple as a recent insect bite or something more complicated like an infection. If you have leg stiffness and soreness you should really be evaluated. You don't usually see that with something as simple as a flea bite. If you're running a fever or if there's any spreading redness around the wound you should definitely be seen right away. ...Read more

I was bitten by a dog 5 weeks ago and still have a hard lump on lower leg,what could this be? I haven't much feeling on the lump but sore around it
Scar tissue: Most likely the hard lump is scar tissue. As the wound heals, scar tissue forms and it is more dense and feels harder than normal skin. It would be unlikely this far out to have a wound infection, but If there is increased redness, swelling, pain or red streaks, I suggest being seen. I hope this helps. ...Read more
