the wound has been an open wound for probably 2 weeks+? yellow scabs kept appearing which were sticky, some fell out. Idk if its healing properly or not

It was a bite on my ankle and i scratched it til it became like that.

Hi brendzzz,

Sorry to see your bite has turned into a wound.

We are not able to give out medical advice but would recommend that you go to get it checked out by your GP who will be able to swab the wound and decide you if you require antibiotics.

You may find our support programme of use to you once you have got it checked out by the GP. Have a look here to sign up for our 12 week programme that offers lots of free information regarding wounds and healing.

Please let us know how you get on,
