I had to go to the hospital this morning because my leg was infected.
I hurt my leg a couple of mornings ago when I was reaching for something behind the oil furnace. I thought my leg was far enough away that I could reach the item without hitting the oil furnace, even though I ended up with a crucial burn on the side of my leg. I put some burn ointment on the section and went to bed; The next morning, I was in a lot of pain and my leg was throbbing. I took something for pain and fell asleep. I spent most of the morning in bed due to the pain. I got up this morning and my leg looks awful. The burn from the oil furnace looked infected so I decided to go to the hospital. I evaluated into the emergency room around 10 and the doctor saw myself and others in record time, but he wasn’t legitimately cheerful that I did not wipe the wound with soap and water when the skin was burned, then dirt infected the wound and the doctor thought I should be admitted for observation. He said the infection looked bad. He wanted to supply myself and others around or 2 of IV antibiotics, however since I don’t have insurance, I opted for over the counter antibiotics and a couple of mornings off work, however my leg hurts alot and I have to rest for multiple sixths on the job. I hope the pills and the time off work will help my leg heal, because I can’t afford to be out of work for a long time and I can’t afford any more doctor visits.
