Legs Peeling Black And Form A Festering Lump?
Hello, after football, my foot skin peeled off, within 3 days my feet started to swell and ache 2 days afterwards, my exfoliated footprints turned black and formed lumps, I got to the clinic, where there were bumps on my feet in the incision so that pus and blood came out, after that the swollen pain in the upper part of the foot disappeared, but it’s been 4 days my foot was still pus and blood, not only that at the bottom around the wound, my palm was red and rather stiff, when I was forced to stand up, there the pain in the red part and bleeding a lot of blood from the incision hole, and now the black “on the soles of my feet is widening, what should I do ?, thank you
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Pus is basically a white blood cell that gathers in certain parts of the body in response to an infection. So that if the wound produces pus, then the possibility of infection has occurred, it could be because the wound is dirty for example caused by falling on the ground, wound care is not good, and so forth.
In your case, we suggest that you immediately check with your surgeon because it is feared that the black tissue indicates that the tissue is dead and must be removed immediately before it has further adverse effects. Another possibility is that the black part behind it is there so much blood that is no longer red or purple, but dark red, dark, or black. In addition, with the bleeding still continuing and pus still coming out, maybe the antibiotic given to you is not working well enough to require specialist treatment.
In the meantime, what you can do is keep your wound clean and dry, don't support your body or move your legs too much, keep taking antibiotics according to the rules, do not take medication as directed by your doctor, and check yourself immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
