Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Having a history of trauma or accident a few weeks ago with abrasions and possible bruising in the area of your feet or around your fingers, this condition will soon improve with regular care and evaluation from your doctor. And if the swelling has improved in 5 days, it shows the condition of injuries and collisions after this accident is mild because it improves according to the standard length of time for wound recovery. However, if you continue to feel a complaint of feeling thick or numb after 5 days of the recovery period is running or even this thick complaint you are still feeling right now after a few weeks of the accident, then chances are there are still parts of the foot that are still not optimally recovering. And these complaints can be influenced by the inflammatory process that still continues in the trauma area. This thick feeling will improve after the inflammation phase heals and you have fully recovered, and this takes about 7-14 days after the treatment period.
So that if the current thick feeling has improved or has healed, then this condition is a painful journey after trauma and is still in a reasonable process. However, if the thick taste has not improved until now, then apart from the inflammation process still occurring, this condition may also be triggered by several things, such as:
1. Muscle tension around the trauma area
2. Bleeding or bleeding that has not dried
3. Infected wounds
4. Lack of relaxation and stretch in the election period that you live
5. You are overly active during the initial recovery period, either long-distance or long-standing, or excessive burden
6. Interrupted blood flow
7. Complete or incomplete fracture in the finger area or around the trauma area
Therefore, if the complaint of thick taste is still disturbing, you should consult with your family doctor or the doctor who treated you before. The doctor will conduct interviews, physical examinations and supporting examinations if needed, such as radiological examinations. The results of the examination will be a reference for doctors to provide further care and further treatment. If needed, medical rehabilitation can be planned to help restore the function of your feet and the comfort of your feet.
For now, it's best to avoid wearing shoes that are too tight, avoiding foot rest, and giving warm compresses to thick areas and light massages to relax thick areas of the foot.
