Itchy Skin Rash After Skin Abrasion
Itchy Skin Rash on Leg
I was scuba diving in St. Martin and scraped my leg on a rock at the bottom of the ocean. It may have been coral instead of a rock but I didn't really think anything of it so I didn't look at it. When I came up from the dive, my leg was scratched and bleeding a little bit. The cuts on my leg healed and then dry skin formed and now it has turned into this horribly itchy skin rash. It has only been a week but I am confused about how it appeared to be healing very well at first and then all of a sudden it became an itchy skin rash. I was thinking bacterial infection, but I am unsure since it seemed to be healing so well for the first four days.
