I posted before because i didn't know what was wrong with my geckos leg, the vet said it may be broken but its gotten worse and i can now see blood and white under the skin so i think it may be an abscess? any ideas? going to go to the vet tomorrow if i can get an appointment want it seen asap...

Looking like the starts of an abscess to me. Your going to need antibiotics with proper dosing. They might want to asperate some of the fluid in order to prescribe type specific antibiotics,.but he may just prescribe a broad spectrum antibiotic.

It's already been 2 weeks I don't think 2 more days is gonna kill him. Worst thing that can happen is it breaks open which is productive with abscesses as it helps drain the funk out.
