Updated

Roger Says:


Her knee was replaced 10 years ago and all these years she was comfortably walking about. However 3 months ago she had eczema on her right leg and that spread up to her knee. Now the eczema on her leg is better but the bacterial infection has gone under the skin to her replaced knee (metal). She has temp 99 - 100
Is there any way to clear the knee of bacteria. She has been given intravenous antibiotics since last 9 weeks.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated as the Doctors where she resides have given up on her; and as you will agree antibiotics for any length of time will have severe side effects
