Diabetic man had leg injury, antibiotics not working?

My husband is 43 years got injury on his leg just below knee while doing river rafting. During trip he just kept wound clean but didn’t take any antibiotics. His diabetic too. After 15 days when he came back he started to take antibiotics but wound had been worsening day by day one dr start aggressive antibiotics treatment. But wound not get better but strat oozing. He took surgical opinion , one surgeon suggested wound debriment under journal anaesthesia…..and told he is diabetic so get 2 to 3 month to get wound healed after surgery. But other surgeon suggest one new antibiotics and stop others. He said more that he is diabetic and his wound is curable by medicine just keep it open and let it dry and keep clean it and surroundings .
We did the same with in two days it got dried but dead cell was on top . He kept it clean with pyodine and neomysine powder.
But today it is oozing agaun though it is not swollen like before. But it is depressing again that it is oozing. He is taking Linezolide 600mg 12hrly. Please advise . His BGL is also controlled random with.in 200 and fasting around 130.

I suggest he goes with wound debriment
Surgical option is safer

Hi and welcome to questiondoctors.com
It looks like it is healing.. Have you tried local application of white honey? It is magic like..
Debridement is better and followed by honey and scanning laser sessions.

hi
its in healing stage. local debridement with removal of necrosed dead tissue will help fasten the recovery process. Local mupirocin ointment application will help.
thanks

hello there
there seems to be a bit of infection still remaining underlying the healing scab. remove the scab and remove the infection thoroughly.spontaneous healing will occur then.

HI
ANTIBIOTICS NOT WORKING BECAUSE SOME PUS COLLECTION IS REMAINING BENEATH THE WOUND.
GET IT CLEANED SURGICALLY
