Infected leg scar. Close-up of an infected leg scar on a 71 year old woman. This is the post- operative scar left after a hip replacement operation. Infection can result in complications due to the local spread of the infection to adjacent organs or tissues. Treatment includes antibiotics, draining any abscesses and cleaning the area with an antiseptic solution.
