Lumps Appear On The Feet After The Entry Of Sharp Objects Such As Glass?
I once asked a question last January. The complaint is as follows: Hello, some time ago I felt my feet had gotten into something (not glass) and I let it go. now in the part that concedes it actually bumps and if pressed it hurts a little. But if the road is not made sick so I leave it. I’ve tried to remove it but it’s very difficult, maybe because it’s been a long time. Do I need to see a doctor? I don’t go to the doctor to check the lump. Because I think it’s okay. But the lump is still there and isn’t gone. The pain is still there when pressed. And also sometimes if you don’t wear sandals, it hurts a bit. What doctor should I see? is it a dermatologist? Or maybe if you don’t need to see a doctor, how should I do it myself?
Hello, thanks for the question.
Parts of the body that have foreign objects inside, under the skin or other parts of the body can stimulate the body to release inflammatory mediators that will cause inflammation, which is marked by swelling, redness, pain, and warm palpation. Foreign objects that are embedded in the legs and are not cleaned properly can cause infection. Foreign objects are at risk of developing into an infection if not handled properly and if the weight can spread to the bloodstream. Embedded foreign body also causes wound healing to be longer and can cause discomfort or pain that is lost due to the movement of foreign objects every time the feet move or walk. If the wound has been implanted for a long time to cause local inflammation in the foot, foreign objects should be removed and must be done in a health care center or you can have it checked by a hospital poly clinic or puskesmas for minor surgery to remove debris from foreign objects. We recommend that you avoid scraping or removing foreign objects with methods that are not sterile because it can exacerbate infections that occur, cold compresses to reduce pain, and avoid excessive pressure on the location of the wound.
Hopefully can help.
