The Area Around The Wound Is Hardened?
My doctor has diabetes. Well, it says it’s an abscess on the back. Yesterday I checked and got the medicine. It has been 1 week the wound has improved and the pus does not come out. But the surrounding area is hardened. If it is pressed hard, that’s why? Thank you?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The area around the wound that has hardened can mean several possibilities, one of which is a response to excessive tissue repair, keloids, skin layer changes, side effects of drugs or the appearance of new lumps such as tumors. This condition must be seen directly to be certain, because it is necessary to know how wide the area is hardened, how it looks, whether there are other symptoms such as redness, itching and pain.
Therefore, the recommendation is to try to check his condition to the doctor who has been treating him or a dermatologist to be ascertained through direct examination. With direct observation, we can get information that may be more than ordinary observations. That way, the diagnosis and treatment can be more precise. Treatment options are most likely to be topical medications.
Meanwhile, there is no need to worry too much because this condition is often harmless. Continue to use the medicine in accordance with the recommendations, and do not need to be touched or smeared anything without the doctor's advice. So, hopefully answering your question.
