For two weeks the pain was still felt even though it was injected with anti-tetanus. Is it necessary to be operated on ??
Hello Lusi, Thank you for the question.
Is the heel where the puncture is still injured? Does the area where the nails are pricked become red, swollen, get sick, warm, or ooze pus? The pain that you still feel can be caused by:
there is still inflammation in the area due to infection in the wound of a foreign object or remnants of nails that are still left in the skin If you still feel complaints of pain, you should consult with your doctor further. The doctor needs to further examine the nail puncture wound to find out the cause of the complaint. Further treatment will be given by the doctor in accordance with the cause of this pain complaint. If it is caused by an infection and the infection is deep enough, the doctor can perform surgery to remove pus and remove the wound from the infection; usually the doctor will also give antibiotics to deal with infections. Small surgery will also be done if you find the remaining nail fragments in your skin.
In the meantime, you can warm compresses on the affected area or take paracetamol or other pain relievers to deal with temporary pain.
I hope this helps.
