    Unhappy Friction Burns, Infected?

    So about a week ago I got really bad rug burn on both my knees. In about a week it scabbed over and the scabs peeled off, though the skin was still pink and sensitive. Then last night I seemed to have re-opened them? Or got friction burn from wood on top of them? (Because, yes, this time it was wood not carpet.) Now both of my knees are extremely red and swollen. Is it infected? Is it something worse? Do I need to go to the doctor? I don't necessarily want to approach the subject of how I got hurt to my parentals, so if this can be treated with some peroxide and a bandage, please let me know ASAP!
    Thank you,

    Sponsors Lightbulb

    Greetings, MegganegaeM My sympathies, I see it has been a few months and wonder if everything is better, if not then yes the professional might be needed. An herbalist might do a good job. Of course everyone makes their own healthcare decisons. I would be interested to know how things go if desired. Peace, sjb :Wave:
