Pain In Abrasions.?
Assalamuallaikum, I want to ask … a week ago I fell from a motorcycle … and my left leg was wounded to the ankle … For now my wound is dry and two days after the accident I can still walk .. . but how come after those two days my legs make the road aches and aches so much even just to stand up … but to be moved sitting there is no problem … I guess why?
Hello, thank you for the question
A history of trauma or bumps is very likely also occur contusions or bruises in the deeper skin tissue, muscle, or even bone. The trauma causes the rupture of small blood vessels so that blood will be trapped under the surface of the skin resulting in bruising. Skin contusion is characterized by swelling, bruising, and pain, especially if applied under pressure.
Whereas contusions in bone are characterized by stiffness, swelling, pain that lasts longer, or difficulty moving the affected area. The general symptoms will decrease along with the process of spontaneous tissue healing that occurs in about 2 weeks.
Another possible condition is sprain or sprains. Sprain occurs when ligaments (tissue that connects bone) experience excessive stretching or small tears.
Both contusions and strains can be treated at home including:
1. Ice packs covered with a clean cloth for about 15 minutes and can be repeated every hour if needed.
2. Raise your leg higher than your chest to get blood flowing to the heart.
3. Take over-the-counter pain relievers such as paracetamol. Avoid using aspirin or ibuprofen to prevent bleeding from continuing.
Carry out further examination with a doctor if the complaint has not improved after more than 2 weeks.
That's all, hope you can help
