HalloSdr. Thank you Hamam for consulting us at HealthReplies.com. we will try to explain what happened to you and its initial handling.
Your hands are swollen and are accompanied by discharge of pus, then this indicates that there is inflammation and bacterial activity that causes white blood cells to try to fight the infection so that it produces by-products of pus. And inflammation or pain that occurs is a result of the production of chemical compounds produced by white blood cells and the body's immune system when there is an infection in the body.
When your body also feels fever and dizziness, it indicates that the bacterial infection has spread throughout the body which is most likely to occur through blood circulation. So that the body's defense system will also release inflammation to kill bacteria but have side effects on the body that is the onset of fever and other effects in the form of headache. The source of infection is most likely to come from your swollen hands, commonly referred to as abscesses or pus that accumulate in a closed room between body tissues, which you don't seem to be aware of for a few days and are not aware of the swelling.
Here are some risks of infection that can trigger festering wounds associated with certain conditions in the wound such as:
the presence of foreign endings embedded and buried in the tissues that inhibit the healing process has certain diseases that can make the wound healing process slow and difficult, such as lung disease, diabetes, liver cancer, and kidneys, the immune system is weak due to the effects of radiation, the use of drugs certain or due to nutritional deficiencies that increase the risk of infection easily occur repeatedly trauma to wounds that are in the process of healing so that the risk of infection becomes greater low blood supply due to certain conditions such as high blood pressure, active smokers, heart disease, and narrowing disease blood vessel. Some types of festering wounds can indeed resolve over time but still these wounds can lead to complications if not treated properly. For that we recommend some temporary treatment at home that you need to do, namely:
clean the wound with water and antiseptic soap avoid to squeeze the suppurating swelling without paramedics who do because it is very risky to get worse if it is too painful, you can take anti-pain medications such as ibuprofen or paracetamol which you can buy freely without a doctor's prescription at the pharmacy Because you have experienced a thorough infection throughout the body, we recommend that you afterwards consult directly with your doctor to get the right treatment and avoid serious complications that can occur.
