Calcification Of Bones Near The Ankles?
Assalamualaikum u003cbr u003e good night
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We are also sorry for your father's condition. However, the term calcification in the medical world is generally used to describe the process of forming a kind of new bone bulge in the joint, where the new bone will cause friction in the joints and cause pain, not the release of liquid or lime-like substances from the body.
Therefore your father's complaint still requires further examination, by knowing the history of the disease now, how it started, what was preceded by the wound, how long, how the appearance of the wound, whether there is a history of diabetes, treatment so far has been anything else and so forth. All this information plus direct observation and supervision will be able to clarify possible diagnoses and treatment options for your father. Therefore, we suggest that you consult your father at a general practitioner first, so that it is known whether it is a form of infection, complications from diseases such as diabetes, or arthritis. With a direct examination, misunderstandings can be avoided and can be more certain that the best treatment for your father, including if it turns out needs to be referred to a particular specialist.
Meanwhile, keep the area clean, if there is pain, may consume over-the-counter painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs by reading the rules of use listed, limit physical activity, warm compresses if there are swellings, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
