I do not have health insurance, and I crashed my motorcycle about a week ago. It wasn't too bad, but I cut my thigh pretty deep. I have been trying to keep the cut clean, but a few days ago it got real red and started to smell. I asked my friend what to do, and he said to pack it with hamburger meat and wrap it in duct tape, so the meat will heal into my leg. I did that two days ago and now it's real bad. My whole leg is swollen and red and I can't feel it. Is there any way I can avoid the emergency room? I can't afford it.

Don't mind the money, you can find a way to afford it. Unless you want to lose your leg first before you want to go to the ER and find way how to afford it.

You have an infection, this will require antibiotics. Why on earth did you actually put hamburger meat into an open wound? Was it raw meat? I think by doing this you have made things worse...The infection wont clear on its own. see your local doctor for oral antibiotics NOW or you may end up in hospital recieving the antibiotics intravenously.
