This answer was rated:

I have had a sore for about 1 month now and it is oozing clear liquid. Will it go away on its
own or do I need to see a doctor?

Thanks for using just answer.

Where exactly you are having this sore? Is it painful and associated with fever?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
It's on my chest. It doen't appear to be painful and I don't have a fever
Ok and thanks for your input.

Respected customer there are various causes of such sore like infections both

bacterial and viral, dermatitis and blisters. You have waited enough and it didn't heal

and i think now you should see your doctor physically for proper treatment. Betadine is

only a antiseptic and it will not treat it.

You may need to start on topical creams like polymyxin B sulphate ( poly fax).
