Our dog bumped into my leg and peeled surface of skin, the wound got larger and scabbed with redness and tightness around the wound. Subsequently the dog bumped into my leg again knocking the scab off/underneath was a deep hole and oozing. The swelling is worse and the redness is more present, while I receive sharp piercing pains from this wound going up the leg and hard form me to be on my feet because my foot swells so bad I am diabetic and have had heart surgeries.
I would recommend you see a wound specialist, and depending on how long the wound has been there, possibly suggest undergoing hyperbaric oxygen therapy. If there are no wound specialists in your area, then just see your PCP and possibly get started on some antibiotics if the wound is infected. As a diabetic, wound healing is somewhat hindered and you have to be careful because these wounds can get worse very quickly. Get in to see someone ASAP.
