knee replacement

Hi.. Im new here.. I had my left knee replaced 02.06.2016.... 3 weeks on and I developed an infection which to this day remains. I have had swabs done which shows the infection is resilient to Antibiotics. Dr's think I may be allergic to the internal stitching. I have had this in the length of my scar, not in one hit. It clears up in one place only to appear in another, the scar itself I have been on silva Gauze to help.. nothing.. Today back at Dr's only to be put on more meds!!!! totally fed up... any ideas/tips.....
