Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Skin wounds can have varying healing times depending on the depth, extent, and treatment given to treat the wound. Pain that appears a few days after experiencing a wound on the skin is not always dangerous. This pain can naturally occur as part of the inflammation in the tissue that is injured. You need to be vigilant if this pain appears with very great intensity, does not relieve with the medicine that the doctor gives, or appears with other danger signs, for example swelling, watery or purulent sores, continuous bleeding, numbness, asymmetrical shape of the legs, significant limitations in moving legs, fever, and so on. In this condition, the possibility of pain due to secondary infection in the wound that is not properly maintained. Or, it could be that the pain indicates an injury that is deep enough to require a long healing time.
If you have seen a doctor and given treatment, then you should first undergo the treatment as recommended by your doctor. The use of ointments also needs to be done according to the doctor's instructions. Since you did not mention what kind of ointment your doctor mentioned, we are not authorized to explain in detail how to use it. Therefore, it is more appropriate if you ask this directly to the doctor who prescribed it.
Meanwhile, in addition to undergoing treatment from a doctor, so that healing can run more optimally, here are some suggestions that you should do:
Minimize excessive movement using the sore leg first
Diligently clean the wound with a clean gauze soaked in NaCl solution, then dry it well so that it is not exposed to excessive moisture.
Always wear loose, clean, dry pants and footwear
Do not handle wounds with dirty hands
Nor is it squeezing, exfoliating, or over-manipulating a wound that hasn't healed completely
Do not provide careless handling of wounds without doctor's advice
Elevate the injured leg while sleeping, for example by propping up a pillow
If the wound does not improve after your doctor's treatment is finished, don't hesitate to go back to the doctor or surgeon, okay?
I hope this helps.
