Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Elephantiasis (lymphatic filariasis) is an infection caused by filariodidea worms in the lymph nodes. This worm can infect humans through mosquito bites. Symptoms that arise due to elephantiasis are divided into 3 phases, namely:
Asymptomatic phase Acute phase; characterized by inflamed skin, lymph nodes and lymph vessels causing swelling, especially in the lower limbs, accompanied by fever, swollen lymph nodes, and various other complaints. Chronic phase; characterized by swollen lymph nodes, and thickening of the skin on the lower legs and / or genitals. It is true, swelling in the legs that feels painful, hard, reddish, accompanied by the appearance of bite marks as you experience can be caused by elephant feet. However, this condition could also occur due to other causes, for example:
Post leg injury Heart, kidney, thyroid gland disorders, etc. If it is true that the complaint has been going on for a week, you should not let it drag on. Check with your doctor IMMEDIATELY so that you do the right treatment. If it is true that complaints occur due to elephantiasis, then treatment can be given by administering anti-worm drugs and several other drugs according to the complaints that arise.
In the meantime, what you should do is:
Get plenty of rest. Elevate or hang swollen legs Avoid wearing tight pants Avoid sitting too long to bend your legs Always keep yourself clean If there are lots of mosquitoes, protect yourself by using mosquito repellent lotion, mosquito nets, and doing the 3M plus movement, namely draining, burying, closing, and sprinkled abate powder Hope it helps ya ..
