hello doctor, I want to ask my 2-year-old child, my leg is swollen, I brought it to the clinic, said infection but it’s been 3 days since the swelling isn’t decreasing, it’s actually getting a swollen blister like oil.
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Swelling in the legs can occur due to various possibilities, can be due to exposure to hot objects, insect bites, skin infections, and immune system disorders. To be able to make the right diagnosis requires direct examination so that you can see the characteristics of the swelling and the history of the disease.
So far the steps you take to take your child to the clinic are appropriate, but in conditions where the complaint is not improving or worsening, all you need to do is take him back to the doctor who treated him before for evaluation. This is important because with the condition not improving, the doctor can determine whether the treatment has been right or not, whether there are drugs that need to be added to the dosage, plus the type or replaced. If previously you just checked your child to a general practitioner, this time go to a dermatologist or pediatrician.
Meanwhile, no need to worry too much, keep using the medication that has been prescribed as prescribed, keep your child's feet clean, don't touch, let alone break the blisters, and immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
