abscess

I had an abscess that was drained on June 29,2012. I''ve been on antibiotics ever since. i have now developed a blue discoloration around the wound and the area around it is still hard. Is this normal and how long does it take before it heals.

Yes, it is normal. The discoloration is due to the process of inflammation of the skin. The discoloration should disappear within a period of two to three weeks.

Thank you very much. The hardness around the incision, how long does that last and how long does it normally take to heal.
