Swelling Of The Feet After A Collision
Good morning, I have complaints on my feet, especially on the ankle area, at this time I always cross-legged on the floor because during work from home, I give food to my child. 4 days ago it was a bit blister and in the afternoon I accidentally hit my ankle in the iron frame when I was clean. Right now the area around my ankles is swollen (there is no visible therapy in blue earna like internal bleeding), to the instep area. I have compressed and used a counterpain ointment but it had subsided but then it was swollen again 2 hours later .. Today I feel that it is getting more swollen and it’s difficult to walk. Please tell me what to do and what medicine?
Thank you for the question.
Sitting cross-legged for too long can indeed cause blisters on the feet. However, if it appears swollen and difficult to walk, it is most likely the trigger is the impact you experience. This impact can be many effects, can simply cause edema or hematoma, which can subside in a short time, but can also damage deeper and wider tissue (for example, cause cracks or broken bones, joint dislocation, tendinitis, bursitis), so healing takes time. longer.
Our advice, the complaint that you experience can be relieved first by:
Compress using swollen foot ice cubes, not carelessly sorted
Rest your feet first from excessive activity, for example, walking long distances, running, jumping up and down, up and down stairs
Stay at home, rest while positioning your swollen feet upwards
Don't wear tight pants or shoes
Live a healthy lifestyle
If until more than 1-3 days your complaint does not also improve, or if you find it very difficult to move your feet, you better check yourself directly to the doctor or surgeon so that more optimal handling is done ... If necessary, later the doctor can perform a supporting examination, such as an x-ray or ultrasound, as a provision for the determination of the best management.
I hope this helps.
