basically i cut my leg when i went out camping with my cousin 2 months ago, i was looking for firewood when i fell and gashed my leg open on a dirty log, i thought it was nothing and covered it with a scarf i found lying around in the woods to stop the bleeding, i mopped up the blood with some old tissues i found a few feet away from an old playboy mag.

i thought it was nothing to worry about because i bandaged it when i got home, (i didnt use any cream or water anything to clean it), i took off my bandages a month later only to find it going green and a had a pretty bad smell, i bandaged it up for another month until the smell got so rancid that i had to check it out, upon looking i found my leg is almost completely pale and numb and i find it really really difficult to walk on it, i have almost no strength in my leg and the bone is really loose and soft, puss has been pouring out of the wound which is now about 11 inches long, i just opened the wound to see if its healing and saw a bunch of creatures in there which turned out to be maggots, im really freaking out right now and i have almost no strength to get out of my chair

please help im terrified
