Hello Jessica, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Based on the information you have provided, there is a possibility that the wound will be repaired or even worse. However, the information that you convey about the state of the wound is still not specific enough to direct good or bad conditions. If you have a sore on your foot, both abrasions and open wounds due to the fall, the provision of natural materials such as the one you use may be a trigger for infection around the wound.
The use of natural ingredients in wounds such as lying, various types of leaves, coffee, etc. will be very risky cause infectious reactions in the wound. Because the materials used are not possible to be sterile to avoid germs. While wound care should use sterile tools and materials. If you do not have a wound even though the wound is very small, and only swelling occurs in the bumps, it could be redness and itching in the wound is a sign of repair of wound tissue. But to be sure, you should do a direct examination to the doctor so you can see the condition of your skin or wounds clearly.
Right now what you can do is:
Keep the wound clean. Avoid using materials that are not clean / sterile. Consumption of drugs given by doctors regularly according to the dose. Maintain a nutritious diet, multiply fruits and vegetables. Consume lots of water. Enough rest. Avoid massaging the injured area. Consult a doctor to get more appropriate treatment. That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
