Contact With Hot Oil?
, I want to ask my mother that I got hot oil on the right hand, all the fingers were affected but only a few were quite severe, I took them to the doctor and got antibiotics and pain relievers, then I gave ointment (Mebo), it happened about 2 weeks ago but That day my mother’s index finger had swelling, what was the solution ??
From the information you conveyed, if the burn has lasted for about 2 weeks, then this burn should be in the recovery stage with good care. Especially if you have checked and received direct care by the doctor who treated her.
If after home treatment and it has lasted 2 weeks, and the finger is currently experiencing swelling, then this condition may be caused by burns whose recovery process has not been optimal, so there is a risk of further inflammation and a risk of infection. Therefore, you should advise your mother to do a repeat examination to the doctor who treated her before, thus, the doctor can do a direct examination and determine the cause of this swelling.
Further care and treatment can be given after the doctor conducts a direct examination of this burn area.
For now, avoid contact with water, and avoid overloading the wound area and associated fingers.
That is the information we can convey, read also burns.
