Link The Wound In The Knee To The Swollen And Painful Groin
night doc, I want to ask right there is a wound in the knee and it has not healed yet that morning I woke up the area around my groin is swollen or if this is called a gland, is the swelling because of the wound or the dock or how do you now experience fever after graduation doc.
Thank you for the question.
If it is true that the swelling in your groin arises because of inflamed lymph nodes (lymphadenitis), then indeed one of the triggers could be due to a wound in the infected knee. This wound infection can also cause you to have a fever. In addition, lymphadenitis can occur in the groin area due to infection around the lower limbs and the abdominal cavity. Other infections (such as HIV, syphilis, tuberculosis, cytomegalovirus, toxoplasmosis), lymphomas, rheumatoid arthritis, leukemia, to the side effects of some types of drugs can also make the lymph nodes swell and appear fever.
However, it should also be known, that swelling in the groin, other than due to enlarged lymph nodes, can also be caused by injuries, joint dislocations, arthritis, skin infections, insect bites, hernias, varicoceles, orchitis, hydrocele, benign or malignant tumors, etc.
Therefore, ensuring the exact cause of your condition must not be careless. If your fever has occurred more than 3 days, you should immediately consult a doctor or doctor of internal medicine. Further tests, such as blood tests, ultrasound, biopsy, x-rays, etc. can also be recommended by the doctor later on you.
For now, all you can do is:
Take paracetamol to reduce fever and swelling
Clean the wound on your knee using a sterile gauze moistened with liquid NaCl, do not over-hold, not too plastered too tight
Expand to rest and drink water
Warm compresses on your swollen groin
Live a healthy lifestyle and maintain your cleanliness
Hope this helps ...
