 leg injury

my 18mth old colt got a deep cut on his hind leg. We had a vet check it out and were given cream and spray and directions on keeping it clean. no major damaged was done, however, a month later he is now completely lame on that leg. no sign of infection or cause. any ideas or suggestions?

 leg injury

We walked him around and the limp went away. So that problem was fixed until we left it open to breathe. It looked like it was closed up. But it's right on his muscle so when he walked around that night it opened back up. Now all of a sudden his leg is swollen from the knee down and there is a bubble that has popped up from the wound. it's about half inch high. If we keep it wrapped the bubble goes away and the swelling goes down. Any more suggestions?
I can't afford a few hundred dollars every other wk when the vet comes out. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks You for the advice. No I have not given any type of injections, I have a fear of needles, but can have it done by someone at the barn. I am gonna have to have a vet out today. He is now not getting up unless we force him to. And has had puss and blood coming outta the back of his leg, which is the other side of his leg. There has to be something we are missing. Some of the signs you said to look for are there, we left it open last night, per vet, and it scabbed over and the puss has slowed down so maybe there is hope for this to heal up after all. Let ya know.
