His entire body had a disproportionate look due to the bandage encasing his left arm and thigh that were excoriated in an accident he had last week.

Well done, Olena. I was thinking of "excoriate" as meaning "to censure or criticize severely" (which can be done with "disproportionate" force or severity). But your answer is correct.

Oh, wow! I don't believe I found that meaning. Thanks for adding it here, now I'll remember it too :)
