Overcoming Bruises On The Feet Feels Painful And Swollen?
Tonight, a few weeks ago I had a motorcycle accident but it was not severe because it did not fall until it only experienced a very hard collision. No one just hurt that my knee’s side had a collision with the front of the motorbike, it seemed very hard because I was not aware, it hurt after half an hour later. Initially there was a little red bruise around 1-2 cm only, then I compressed warm water for a while and according to info from Google should use ice cubes, finally I replaced ice cubes. After – + 6 hours the bruise is about 5-10 cm wide and some are purplish red, some are black, but the initial part which is only 1-2cm remains red unchanged, only the surroundings become purplish, after 1 week of the bruising began to fade, leaving a red color around the outside of the bruise. But in the initial collision area, it feels painful when pressed and feels hard (from the beginning there was swelling but it has begun to disappear but only the hard part will be). I press it feels hard like bone, but even if the road is not problematic, it doesn’t hurt only hurt when pressed. When my legs bend the swelling is not visible, but when the legs are straightened it will look swollen if touched (pressed). But in my opinion it’s not bone, but like swollen muscles, or blood vessels, every night I apply a cream to relieve muscle pain (counterpain) but sometimes it feels itchy. How to overcome this and or is it dangerous to swelling?
Hello NadiahPU, Thank you for the question.
Have you seen a doctor about your complaint? Impact on parts of the body that cause a number of disorders of the body that can include bruising, open sores, fractures, disorders of muscles, tendons, ligaments, disorders of other soft tissues, disorders of nerves or blood vessels. The impact of this impact depends on how strong the impact is. If you experience a bruise, the first treatment you can do is to compress the bruised ice for 72 hours after the collision occurred; if after 3 days, bruises still appear, you can do a warm compress.
Complaints of swelling and pain in your knee can be caused by:
bursitis, which is inflammation of the joint bearings
disorders of the tendons or ligaments around the knee
If after a few weeks you still experience these complaints, please consult with your doctor first. The doctor will ask you questions about your complaint, do a check on your knee, and suggest other examinations such as X-rays, ultrasound, or MRI. After knowing the cause, the doctor will provide the right treatment for you. You can also do the following suggestions:
avoid sudden movements in your knee, avoid excessive physical activity on the knee
position the feet higher each time for example by placing a pillow under the feet when sleeping
apply warm compresses to the affected area to reduce swelling
Hopefully this information is useful.
