Health Query

I am a 72 year male six months back I traveled to us and the moment I landed I saw a small bruise next to my the next one month the infection took over my entire leg and I was hospitalized in los angeles. Doctors here could not confirm what’s causing it as it was not cellulitis / impetigo nor could they determine the bacteria (it was not mrsa bacteria) I had no other medical condition not even fever just swollen leg with white liquid oozing out. In the hospital I was treated intravenously with antibiotics (penicillin, vancomycin and finally linezolid worked on him) side effect was my skin on entire body had blisters and would itch, which is fine now. Now I am fine and the wound is covered with bandage .my problem is the moment I remove the bandage liquid starts oozing out and the redness spreads.
