(but in my opinion it’s not that bad) nWhat is the right way to handle when in pain? n nI have tried all the methods I still haven’t. Healed. n nThank you .. 😊
Hi Andra .. Thank you for the question given.
There is a sore on the finger and the swelling and pain as you described can result from an infected wound. Bacterial infected wounds can occur if the wound is not cared for properly, the wound is dirty when exposed to the machine and is not cleaned until it is completely clean so that there may still be foreign objects left in the wound, open wound. Infected wounds can become inflamed, become painful, red, swollen, feel warm, and cannot function properly. If there is a collection of pus it can become an abscess. For handling, doctors can provide antibiotics and pain relief, as well as wound care. Wound care also aims to remove the pus you have. If indeed your husband's fingers are painful and swollen, and numb, it's good to go back to see a doctor. So that doctors can do a direct examination and evaluation of the treatment that has been undertaken. In addition, the doctor can recommend X-rays to see if the wound is stretched to the bone or not.
Meanwhile, what can be done:
Can consume pain medications such as paracetamol according to the dosage
Cover the wound with sterile gauze to avoid dirt, avoid getting wet
Do not touch the injured finger
Eat nutritious foods to aid wound healing
