Good evening doctor, I have an ankle wound, how should I do it? Do I exercise or not? I am afraid that if I am not trained to walk, when I heal my legs, my movements will be limited because the skin that is formed is not flexible because when the wound is lacking in motion, how should the doctor? Thank you in advance

Hello Admaji, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com

Basically to support and accelerate wound healing, the wound must not be stretched and rubbed. For this reason, wounds in areas of the joints will usually heal longer than in other areas because the skin in the joints is more moving and stretched. The presence of an ankle injury should not make you afraid to walk as well, but it is better when walking, minimize movement in the area of ​​your ankle so that your injury is not stretched much.

Flexible or non-flexible skin after wound healing actually depends more on whether scar tissue is formed in your wound or not and how big and how deep the scar tissue is formed. Scarring is not as elastic as normal skin, but as long as the wound in your foot is not too big and not too deep (for example, only abrasions), the scar tissue that is formed usually will not interfere with the movement of your ankle. If the wound on your foot is large and deep, then the possibility of scar tissue that will form is quite large. Moving your ankles will only make the wound heal longer and will not make the scar tissue that is formed become more elastic as normal skin. A long healing wound can potentially be a place for infection and potentially make the scar tissue that is formed even bigger.

If your wound is large enough, to prevent the formation of thick scar tissue (such as hypertrophic or keloid scar tissue), you can use silicone gel or a plaster containing silicone gel. Use it when your wound is completely dry and the scab is all peeled off.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
