The Fingers Are Swollen Like Boils?
Good afternoon, I’m a 37-year-old woman. There is a swelling in the middle finger with a yellow center. Saturday night, August 24, 2019: pain like stabbing Sunday, August 25, 2019: small lump like boils can grow. Monday, August 26, 2019: somewhat enlarged. Not so painful Tuesday, August 27, 2019: bigger. The pain is made motion, Wednesday, August 28, 2019: getting bigger. The yellow center is also enlarged. Pain and pain reached the wrist. Do I need to see a doctor? Or do I leave it until the swelling breaks off on its own? But sometimes not comfortable with the cenut-cenutnya.Thank youAudrey
Good afternoon Audrey, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The conditions that you experience can occur due to several possibilities, including:
Fungal skin infections
Skin irritation due to chemicals
Bacterial skin infection
Insect bite or sting
Our advice is that you should consult your doctor, because the complaint may require the handling of antibiotics to get it, you must have a prescription and be monitored by a doctor. By seeing a doctor you can also feel more comfortable because given painkillers during the healing process. In addition, of course, all the above possibilities can be considered so that the diagnosis and treatment can be more precise.
In the meantime, keep the area clean, do not solve it intentionally, take over-the-counter anti-pain and anti-inflammatory drugs by reading the rules of use listed to help reduce the pain, and check yourself immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
