Open wounds will indeed be treated through suturing to close the wound and reduce the risk of infection. After suturing the swelling generally persists for several days as a part of the wound course in the inflammatory stage. However, at least after 1 week the swelling generally starts to decrease. If the swelling continues, there is a possibility that other causes of inflammation may occur, such as infection in the wound, which is not only swollen but also characterized by redness and pain, sometimes fever can be followed. Swelling can also be caused by blood clotting disorders so that the healing of the swelling is inhibited. In addition, what you may feel is not swelling, but just a protrusion of the bone, because of a problem with your finger bone when you hit the propeller. What is clear, of course, is that it is difficult to determine the cause of your complaint, let alone overcome it, without first being re-examined. In general, patients can apply cold compresses to the swollen area. However, we highly recommend that you check it directly with the doctor who treats you, to be able to determine further treatment. Here we attach an article about wound infection. May be useful.
