How To Deal With Wounds?
4 days ago, I had an accident, the wound was on the ankle and near the shin, the wound near the shin was white and the ankle was red. nI have brought first aid to the clinic. Is it natural if entering the 3-4th day the feet become difficult to use, standing or even walking? In addition there is swelling around the ankles. How do you fix it so that it dries quickly and the swelling goes away quickly?
Injuries to the leg area and anywhere on the body can cause symptoms such as: swelling, difficulty moving, pain, and cause signs of infection.
The conditions you mentioned above can indeed arise if one of the following occurs:
The wound is infected
Not handled properly
Experiencing complications such as fractures in the leg and ankle bones
The wound is quite large
Joint areas that are more difficult to heal due to frequent movements.
We recommend that you have this condition checked by a doctor or nearest health facility, so that you can see whether there are signs of danger that require immediate treatment or not.
To solve this, we recommend:
Make sure beforehand that there are no complications to the leg bones and legs. Get x-rays through your doctor.
Perform wound care cleanly, and regularly. Using a clean solution, antiseptic solution, and sterile bandages.
Avoid using your legs and feet temporarily, as directed by your doctor
Avoid alternative measures that could exacerbate the crack condition, if any.
You can take commonly used anti-pain and anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen or mefenamic acid
So, hopefully this helps.
