blood test needed?

I have this open sore (skin deep) on my leg for a month now. I went to the doc and was prescribed an anti-biotic. Before going on the anti-biotic I also developed small itchy pimples all over my body - which resulted in me going to the doc. Can the pimples be caused by the sore - or do I require blood tests?

Dear Worried
I don't think the ulcer caused the pimples, but it could have been caused by something you are allergic to - could be something you ate or something you put on the wound. Has it cleared up now?
