Fester Of The Thigh And Calf?
Hello,. If in the legs (thighs and calves) there are a lot of festering wounds, such as craters, large, itchy, what causes it? It hasn’t been more than a month yet. Sometimes it feels very itchy, finally scratched and the wound even gets bigger. Is it okay to smear the wound with erlamycetin eye ointment? What is the solution? Thanks
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
The condition of the injury to the leg that you are experiencing needs to be explored further. Need to know more about the initial symptoms that you experience before the wound becomes festering (beginning with wounds such as swelling and redness, beginning with post-accident wounds such as scraping or tearing, sharp pierced and open wounds), the course of symptoms and the shape of the wound until now ( get bigger, perforated, produce pus, blood, or clear fluid), other symptoms experienced (fever, pain in the legs, tingling, numbness), history of allergies, history of treatment that you have used to reduce these symptoms.
Swelling of the feet accompanied by sores and pus can be caused by bacterial infections in the foot area, parasitic infections in the foot area, other foot abnormalities accompanied by secondary infections (eg postoperative wounds, infected post-injury wounds), malignant conditions in the feet. To determine the correct diagnosis of your condition, it is advisable to consult a doctor regarding further examination and management. It is necessary to do a physical examination and supporting examinations such as blood tests or examination of samples of fluid coming out of the wound in the leg.
It is recommended not to take self-medication without doctor's instructions, because from your description there are quite a lot of festering wounds. A check should be done first so that management can be given effectively. Avoid consuming or using self-medication without doctor's instructions, avoid scratching the wounded and festering area, maintaining good hygiene in the injured area, consulting thoroughly and controlling wound care, avoiding exposure to dirty and dusty areas to avoid worsening the condition.
