I would get good clear pictures and text them to the vet. Nothing gets their attention faster than pictures:)
Also mud fever can sometimes lead cellulitis, which is serious if left un-cared for.
Watch for the legs to start stocking up from bottom to top. The legs could swell with liquid to where they look like you want to poke them with a pin to let the liquid out:(. If let go, liver damage could happen. This doesn't happen all the time but sometimes happens when bacteria get into an open sore. Humans can also develop cellulitis from bacteria entering an open sore or wound.
Anyway, text pics to the vet:)
