wound won't heal on leg....leaking watery fluid?
I have a wound on the back of my right leg that just keeps getting bigger and bigger. It started out as a cut when i was shaving i have psoriasis and shaved over that and now I have a wound that won't heal...it is leaking a watery substance. It's not red or warm to the touch or anything...it's just there and leaks all day. I try to leave it unwrapped so maybe it will scab over but it won't. Any suggestions?

Hi earthdwe. What ever happened to grandma's remedies. We have become completely dependant on the DOCTOR for every cut and scratch!

Ok. Now that I have said my piece, the only reason for you to sit in an ER room is if you are an advanced HIV person. You already said that this spot is the only one on your body, so it's not like you started with one and now you have a big abcess and four satelite lesions. Yes, you have psoriasis, and that will in general give you a greater risk for skin infections (the areas that are involved in lesions).

So, do what grandma would tell you to do. SCRUB the thing with alcohol/hydrogen peroxide and put a dab of neosporin (use generic) and put a sterile bandaid on it. Each day do the same thing. If you are worse in three days then make an appointment.

Have a safe journey!

see a doctor. it's not good when a wound won't scab over. that means that the body's white blood cells may not be registering that your body needs to be repaired.

Sounds infected....you need to see a doctor about it.

try loading the wound with neosporin and wrapping it tightly. if the drainage persists, then go see your doctor.

hmmm i dont know what to do to make it better..you should probably get it checked out. until then maybe try symptom checker on webmd.com

You should really see a doctor. You could end up getting a staph infection that seems to be a problem nowdays. That is not something you want to get. Besides, a unhealed wound on the lower leg can signal a circulation problem or diabetes.

go to the doctors, it may be serious
in the meantime, maybe try and keep pressure on it for awhile so the fluid will stop leaking and hopefully a scab will form afterwards.

See a physician/dermatologist asap..

You are left open to infection if it continues to weep and it's a signal that the natural mechanism of your body to form a protective scab isn't working for some reason. The fluid is only your own body fluid (assuming it's clear and thin).

But, don;'t take a chance with this. Wound care is a whole specialty unto itself. I once had a similar problem and wound up with 7 layers of burn gel, protective bandaging and wrappings. Expensive (tho insurance paid) but worth it as it did heal and was protected while doing it.

Don't allow it to continue... get thee to a doctor for a referral. The worry of being diabetic or of falling victim to a staph infection is VERY REAL.
