Thankyou for your response. It was indeed helpful. When I asked as to why the antibiotics would be necessary with a closed injury where there would seem to be no risk, the reply I got was that while there is no infection risk, it is still to avoid any chance of infection. Maybe language was the barrier for any further explanation. I hadn't considered the mosquito bite factor or any of the other elements you mentioned. Thanks again! I am on Doxycyline as my anti malaria (accompanied with a probiotic), can I take Erythromycin (what they gave me) four times a day, and Doxy together.
Thanks! I have done exactly that. . . holding off on the anti's, and will watch it very closely. It seems much better today, just with being bandaged and elevated. Thanks again.
