Stiff Legs, Bruises, Small Bumps
Doc, my legs are often sore, there are small bumps on my calves, sometimes there are bruises too. That’s the cause and how to overcome it, huh doc?
Thank you for the question.
Feet that often feels sore, sometimes bruised, and small-legged may indicate the skin of your foot is infected, for example due to folliculitis, erysipelas, shingles, impetigo, cellulitis, and so on. Other factors, such as irritant contact dermatitis, insect bites, infections of other organ systems, arthritis (such as rheumatoid arthritis or gout), vascular disorders (such as varicose veins or peripheral arterial disease), tendinitis, etc. can also cause clinical symptoms on the feet as you experience it.
How to deal with this condition may differ depending on the cause. Our advice, if the complaint feels mild, then handle your complaint independently at home, namely by:
Wash and wash your feet thoroughly
Do not rub or squeeze any lumps that appear on your feet
Compress your feet with warm or cold water (choose the one that is most comfortable for you)
Do not smoke
Discipline to exercise and maintain your ideal body weight
Do not let the skin of your feet contact with substances that can trigger allergies or irritation
However, if the pain feels very annoying, especially for example to make you have difficulty walking, swelling, and other complaints appear heavier, it's better to check yourself directly to the doctor, yes. If necessary, the doctor can refer you to see a surgeon, dermatologist, or also doctor with other specialties.
Hope this helps ...
