Hello,. Want to ask if a good anti-pain and anti-inflammatory drug for people who have fallen in an accident? Do you need to give antibiotics too? thank you
Hello Jundiana, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
In handling accident cases, several things need to be analyzed first:
What accident happened, was it falling from a bicycle or falling from a motorcycle, being hit by a motorbike or car, crashing between motorized vehicles, falling from a ladder, falling from a height, or what accident?
If a motor vehicle accident occurs, it is also necessary to know how fast the vehicle is running?
What was the position when you fell, did you fall on your seat, was there a head impact, was there a collision on other limbs?
Are there any symptoms after the accident, such as loss of consciousness, shortness of breath, limb deformity, or other symptoms?
Are there any stab wounds, lacerations, peeling skins, or just blisters? If it's just an abrasion, how wide is it?
and much more
There are so many things that must be analyzed if someone has an accident. Therefore, it's a good idea to describe more clearly the accident you experienced and the injuries that occurred. If there is an impact to the head, you experience a decrease in consciousness, there is a stab wound, there is extensive burns, there is a deformity of the limbs, you experience shortness of breath, chest pain, or severe pain in other places, it is better if you go to the hospital immediately so that further evaluation and management can be done.
If all you have is abrasions and the abrasions do not occur in the face area, then you can treat the blisters yourself at home. The following is an article that you can read about how to treat abrasions. To deal with pain, you can take painkillers such as paracetamol. If there are bruises and swelling in certain places (without malfunctioning), you can apply a cold compress to the swollen and painful area.
Certain non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, corticosteroid drugs, and antibiotics you cannot buy without a prescription from a doctor and you should not take them without going through a direct examination at the doctor first.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
