  • I had one last year from a bad scrape on my foot. Fortunately it did not move to the bone, but I was on some heavy antibiotics for a month. I also got 4 injections of another antibiotic over 4 weeks time along with a tetanus shot. They did x-rays to make sure it didn't go into the bone.

    Everything is fine now. I have a purple scar about 2"x3" on top of my foot.
