Poked In A Child’s Leg Last Night And Now It Is Swollen, Is It Natural?
Hi, I want to ask you again that night. I was stabbed by a child like an iron, then I washed it and I dropped propolis the next day, my feet are swollen, is that normal? And until now I haven’t seen a doctor. thank you
Punctured children's toys with materials such as iron must be aware of and further treatment is needed, because it is at risk for contracting tetanus. Tetanus is a bacterial infection of Clostridium Tetani, which can affect the entry through wounds (dirty sores, wounds caused by rusty iron). Symptoms of tetanus include stiffness / spasm of certain muscle parts and convulsions. The swelling condition that you are experiencing means that there is an inflammation, it needs to be examined further if there is an infection at the site of entry of the iron / wound site. It may also be swollen due to inflamed wounds contaminated with propolis.
Things that you might experience after the iron-punctured event, including:
pain around the wound
swelling around the wound
Here are the things you need to pay attention to:
immediately check the condition of the wound further to the doctor
injecting ATS (Anti Tetanus Serum)
sterile wound care by medical personnel and carried out routinely at home
keep the area around the wound clean
avoid giving topical herbal or foliage or herbs in the area around the wound
