Thanks for making contact DR. I am a UK ex***** *****ving in Moscow and my girlfriend went to visit her dad in southern Russia. He had this problem with his leg, he went to the hospital there but they said they don't have room for him and they won't help him so I am thinking I need to fly him to Moscow for treatment. Can you please tell me how serious this looks.
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 2 years ago.
This certainly does look pretty serious and would most likely require hospitalization and treatment with intravenous antibiotics after the diagnosis is confirmed.
So I would recommend that he be seen ASAP to have this taken care of.
