Swelling On A Fallen Child’s Foot Scar?
Malam..2 weeks ago my child fell down and got a wound but now it has healed and has peeled off the scar but why is it that the scar has been swollen right now in 3 days and it’s a bit red and sick …
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Swelling that appears on the knee can occur due to various things, which when associated with a history of falls and the presence of wounds, most likely due to infection. When someone is injured anywhere in the body, the skin will be damaged and the body will lose protection by the skin against viruses and bacteria in the area. If the wound is not kept clean, inflammation can occur, and is characterized by redness, swelling, and pain.
However, other causes that are less likely can also occur, such as arthritis, immune system abnormalities, the body's response to insect bites allergies that your child may not be aware of, and so forth. For this reason, your child should do a doctor's examination first, so you can be sure about his condition. By looking directly at your child's history, you will be able to find out the tendency of your child's illness, and what treatment is most appropriate for him.
Meanwhile, warm compresses to the painful part, ask your child to reduce activity, keep the body clean, especially in the scar area, do not consume drugs without doctor's advice, and do not scratch or peel the scars. So, hopefully answering your question.
