Before the fasting month I fell and the edges of my feet were sewn for about 12-15 stitches, I said if I wanted to gatell it around the wound and swelling, and the itching spread to the calf of the calf.

Hello, Suci maghfiroh, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.


Itching and swelling around the suture wound can have several possible causes:


1. Infection of the suture wound


2. Infections of the skin due to bacteria, fungi, viruses, or parasites. Can be triggered or aggravated by scratching, decreased endurance, or poorly maintained skin hygiene.


3. Contact dermatitis due to plaster, gauze, drugs, or others


4. Allergic reactions.

To find out the cause, a direct physical examination is needed and if necessary a supporting examination can be carried out. Treatment depends on the cause. If it is due to a bacterial infection, it is necessary to give antibiotics, if it is due to fungi then it is given an antifungal, if due to allergies it is necessary to be given an allergy.


Suture wound care is very important for fast wound healing. Wound healing depends on the condition of the wound, whether there is infection or not, the cleanliness of the wound, the part of the body that is injured, and the sufferer's immune system. In people with a weak immune system such as people with diabetes, HIV / AIDS, or taking drugs that suppress the immune system, wound healing is relatively longer.


To prevent worsening, you should immediately consult a doctor. Also, don't scratch the skin. If it itches, just pat it, take a deep breath and exhale slowly and repeat several times, or apply cold water. It is better to routinely have stitches checked by a doctor as recommended. Keep the wound clean and keep it dry.


That's all, hopefully it's useful.
