My father has a large pit in his forehead that takes up a good portion of it. It has grown from a small pit no more then a couple centimeters to what it is now. Hes 66 and refuses to go to the hospital for treatment. Now my sister and I believe he may have a staph infection on top of it now yet still refuses to go to the hospital. My sister has and her family are worried that they might get it but nothing will make him budge. Hes starting to look bad and I'm not sure what to do. I've been considering just calling an ambulance or the police to try to force him to go. Can someone please help me since I'm at a loss.
