One week ago, I got scratched by a rose bush on my right leg. I was wearing long pants but I guess it went through. I had two long scratches on my leg as a result. Well, now it has evolved into more. I have two bigger wounds now where there wasn't even a scratch before and they hurt. Another one of those is starting to form. And now even more are showing up out of no where. I have another one that looks like a big bug bite. Also, numerous small ones that look kind of like razor burn.. Not sure if this is dangerous or I should just let heal on its own. What are your recommendations?

If they appearing for no reason and the old ones are evolving into something else it sounds like you have some kind of infection. Get to a hospital right away and get your wounds cleaned and wrapped. My friend cut herself on a jack bush once and she let her wounds heal naturally and ended up in the hospital for two months. Not trying to scare you! I am sure you'll be fine. Just go to the doctors and get some kind of cream before it gets worse! Good luck! Hope I helped :/ x [ Wishuponastar13's advice column | Ask Wishuponastar13 A Question ]
