I fell on concrete last Friday and I didn't see a need to go

Customer Question

I fell on concrete last Friday and I didn't see a need to go to the doctor at that time. I have abrasions on my knees and elbow from the fall. Ihave applied neospern and it seems to be healing but at night the crust that has coated the sore comes off. What should I do?
JA: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?
Customer: No swelling. I tried liquid bandaid but it hurts. I apply neospern and things are fine. The biggest problem is in the worning when I wake up and the skin has come off.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I can't take asprin and penicillum
