The Wound In The Calf Oozes Fluid And Feels Painful?
Good eveningrnI want to ask, my father (47) has a wound on his left calf, the wound is dry but there is fluid coming out. And around the wound if held feels hard. Also still feel pain above the ankles. What’s the solution? Thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Wounds are tearing or disconnection of body tissue so that the tissue behind it emerges, which can be caused by accident, injury, or intentionally in surgery. Wounds if small and simple can indeed heal on their own, but even the smallest wounds can increase the risk of infection.
The symptoms that your father felt, marked by discharge and pain, could actually be associated with an infection, especially if the wound was rather large and was dirty. Our advice, get your father's feet checked by a doctor immediately to assess whether there is really an infectious process going on. If so, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics and painkillers to relieve symptoms. In the meantime, keep the area of your father's wound clean, and avoid squeezing or peeling the wound. Hope your father gets well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
