How To Deal With Pain In The Right Ankle Due To Needle Sticking?
good afternoon, I am Vivi 21 years old ..
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A needle stick, although it only causes a minor wound, it can also be dangerous if the wound is deep enough. The risk of this danger can be higher if the needle punctured your leg is dirty or corroded. It could be that your pierced leg will become more prone to inflammation, especially as a result of infection.
Infection of the stab wound on the leg can be quite painful. Not only that, this infection can also make the feet become red, swollen, and produce abnormal secretions (such as pus or smells bad). It could also form a pocket filled with pus (abscess) so that a lump appears on the leg that was punctured. One type of infection that needs serious attention due to needle sticking is tetanus. This condition is characterized by stiffness to comprehensive muscle spasms, starting from the hands, feet, trunk, to the jaw, which makes the sufferer experience difficulty speaking, swallowing, breathing, and can even lead to death.
As for the pain you experience in your feet after being pricked by a needle, apart from infection, it can also occur due to a mild inflammatory reaction and will get better by itself in a few days. Or, it could also be due to more serious damage to other tissues in the leg, such as damage to ligaments, muscles, joints, bones, and so on.
You can first try to overcome your pain with the following steps:
Take paracetamol medicine Do not over massage the sore heel Compress the sore heel with warm water Keep the heel that has been stabbed clean and dry. does not improve after doing the tips above, you should check with your doctor directly so that it will be further evaluated and given the best treatment, ok?
I hope this helps.
