Hello doctor .. afternoon afternoon, when I saw my left thigh tba2 swollen, then reddish .. Brew it n hot … Bru feet cold.
Thank you for the question.
Swelling, redness, itching, and chills on one side of the thigh may be caused by:
Inflammation in the skin of the thighs, for example due to shingles, impetigo, cellulitis, insect bites, allergic or irritant contact dermatitis
Thigh injuries, for example, result in joint dislocations, ligament injuries, muscle cramps
Joint disorders, for example due to rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout
Other factors, such as filariasis, certain viral or bacterial infections, lymphadenitis, peripheral arterial disease, deep vein thrombosis, malnutrition, heart problems, kidney disorders, etc.
These conditions, if they occur only yesterday afternoon, should be treated first independently by:
Rest your feet that have complaints, position higher, do not massage, compress with warm water
Make sure your body, especially the feet, is always clean
Don't wear tight pants or footwear, don't sit too long, bend your legs
Regularly exercise every day
Maintain your ideal body weight
Drink plenty of water, and eat balanced nutritious foods
Avoid contact between feet that have complaints with detergents, latex, and other substances that are prone to trigger allergies or irritations in the skin
The rest, if the complaint does not improve within 3 days, or other complaints appear more severe, such as difficulty walking, numbness, very large swelling, high fever, and so on, immediately you consult your doctor. If necessary, the doctor will direct you to undergo an x-ray examination, ultrasound, CT scan, blood tests, and even also refer you to the right specialist doctor, such as skin, nerves, surgery, or internal medicine.
Hope this helps ...
