When there is an infection in your body, it can get inside any of your bones. An infection of the bone is very dangerous and can lead to a condition called osteomyelitis. The result can be severe damage to the bone or even a loss of a limb.
In some cases, the infection starts out as an infection on the skin called cellulitis. The skin is often very hot and sensitive to the touch.
If this type of infection is not treated with antibiotics, it can inside the bone. Even if an antibiotic is given, it may not be strong enough. A stronger antibiotic must be given.
If you have had cellulitis or a bone infection, it may be because of medical malpractice in Baltimore or in Maryland.
