He hit it on something last Friday at work and came home with a hole that was bleeding. He doesn't know how it got a hole he thought it was a scratch. Well yesterday it was still bleeding and I told him he should go to the doctor. Today it looks like this, the pain in my ass still says its fine and he will see the doctor Next monday if its not better. I swear I'm going to have to tie him up and get my friends husband to help me take him in!! If he would just let me make him an appointment it would cost $25 if her goes to urgent care it's $75 and the ER is $250. I'm going to beat the man!


Update
So apparently I'm not wrong! He went to the doctor this morning they are irrigating the wound and giving him an antibiotic shot and a prescription. Maybe next time he will listen to me before it gets that bad.

Right now it looks fine to me. I am a wound tech in a nursing home. I would clean it put some triple antibiotic on it and keep it covered.

Get some neosporin (or store brand) on it and put a bandaid on it...then keep an eye on it

I'm worried because the hole is actually bigger and you can't tell in the pic but his leg is swollen. Also the red spots around it have white like pimples.

It looks like it may be infected but not badly enough to go in.

Clean it up and keep and keep it covered.

It doesn't look infected to me. We clean with peroxide and cover it with some antibiotic and that us about it.

I do not think it is infected at this point. Antibiotic cream and keep clean.

His leg does look a little swollen. Is he complaining of any pain from it? Does it ooze any pus?

I've been putting antibiotic ointment on it. It just looks worse than the day he did it and was really swollen this afternoon.
