    Sounds like possible infection... or allergy to the antibiotic, are you having any other symptoms... did the ankle get injured when you got the cuts ? More to the point how did the cuts happen 😕

      More likely an injury that you have managed to walk through because sometimes we are too tough too since and moan .. could be torn ligament, sprained, fracture? The cuts wont help bless you. I feel very hard on my knee and cut it but this was 4 months ago.. it still hurts it swells on and off and if i slightly knock it the knee bone feels like its on fire.. didn't get it checked out though too busy 😕 but now I am going to suggest to you to ask for an x ray, i shall practice what I am preaching. Definitely do get it looked at if you can

      I fell and mildly grazed my knees and the cuts healed quickly. However, I too was left with a sporadic burning sensation on the bone of one knee. I think, I may have damaged a nerve because this is the sensation you get with nerve injuries. I have nerve injuries in both my arms from a bad fall to the elbow and a dodgy blood test. I get burning sensations there too.

    I have ignored injuries in the past because I was too busy and frightened to see the doctor. I have lived to regret it because the injury did not heal properly. It's good you are seeing your doctor. If the wound keeps opening, it sounds like it might need stitching.

      Maybe the infection is resistant to the antibiotic you were given. Your doctor will have to try a different one if this is the case. My mum got frequent UTis and was given antibiotics. On one occasion, the urine test showed that the particular bacteria she had was resistant to the antibiotic she was taking. She was given a different medication and the infection cleared up. Ask your doctor to test for antibiotic resistance.
