Causes Of Discharge Due To Infection In The Knee?
I’m Rega, I’m in class 2 at the 2013 Curriculum Middle School. Now I suffer from knee pain. My knee hasn’t healed yet, there is fluid coming out. Then how do I get better?
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Knee disease is a broad description of the disease that can be caused by many possibilities. So that the description of fluid coming out continuously from the knee also needs to be made a more specific description of disease complaints.
However, if the data obtained is only a disease of the knee and discharge from the knee, then some of the conditions below can cause this complaint, such as:
1. an open wound that is not dry
2. puncture wounds that have not improved or have not been treated properly
3. abscess or infection with pus formation in the knee that has not been treated properly
In connection with your question, if your knee disease with fluid that continues to come out has been going on for a long time, then to find out the cause and for proper treatment, it is necessary to know the history or events that triggered this complaint began to appear, besides that if your complaint has been long feel, it is necessary to do a direct examination by a family doctor or surgeon, so the doctor can ascertain the cause and provide appropriate treatment.
In general, in school-age children, the fluid that comes out continuously from the knee area is often caused by injuries such as open sores that may be contaminated by microorganisms that cause infection in the wound area and or until the onset of pus in the wound area. So that if this wound or infection in the knee area is not treated and recovered, the fluid will continue to come out of the wound surface or infected knee area. By doing wound care and wound closure as well as consulting a doctor, it is hoped that these complaints will improve and soon recover.
For now, close this wound area, and avoid contact with water.
Thus the info we can convey.
