Septic Wound
Will a wound heal on the outside and still be septic inside? My docter removed a mole on my breast and it took almost a month just to close up. Now it is closed but I experience darting pain in my breast and my breast is tender. It also looks like the centre of the wound has a yellowish colour but underneath the skin?
