Yesterday I cleaned it using intravenous fluids and water, then I gave the ointment that I bought at the pharmacy. But in the afternoon it became swollen. So far, her leg is still swollen.

Hi Nur Jannah,
Thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Swelling in the legs that you experience, can be caused by several things because the feet have various structures such as bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments (connectors between bones). Prior history of trauma allows interference in one of them. There are several possibilities that can occur related to the complaints you are experiencing, such as:
Infection, can come from a wound that occurs Muscle injury Joint dislocation Fractures or fractures You should consult your doctor to determine what is causing the swelling you are experiencing. Doctors need to carry out direct examinations in the form of questions and answers, physical examinations and supporting examinations such as x-rays to see structures that may be disturbed if needed. That way treatment can be given according to the underlying cause.
Here are some things you can do before going to the doctor:
Avoid excessive activity on swollen feet Perform cold water compresses If your feet feel very painful you can take painkillers as an initial treatment before seeing a doctor. That's all I can say, I hope it's enough to answer.
