How do you get rid of it?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. A wound occurs when a certain force, energy or force is strong enough to cause a break in the connections between the tissues in the body. Based on the tool that caused the wound, more specifically there would be stab wounds, abrasions, gunshot wounds, cuts and tearing wounds.
If in the process of this injury, the connection between blood vessels is also cut, be it veins, arteries, or capillaries, blood will come out. In general, in normal people, first aid measures of cleaning the wound with running water and pressing the injured area with gauze or cloth can clog the arteries and stop bleeding, especially if the wound is small.
But if the wound doesn't stop, among the factors that can slow down the wound healing process are:
Lack of nutrition such as lack of vitamins A, B6, B12, K, zinc and protein High blood sugar levels Poor blood circulation Lifestyle such as smoking, excess weight / obesity, alcohol consumption Old age Stress side effects of drugs Other media conditions such as lack of factors blood clots, spinal cord disorders, immune system disorders, and blood cancer
In your case, because we don't know exactly how much blood is still bleeding, how big the wound is and how your foot is now, to avoid misunderstandings and unwanted things, we highly recommend that you check with your GP or doctor surgeon specialist. Your doctor will focus on taking a history and physical examination to assess whether your injury has hit a large blood vessel making it difficult to stop or if there are other factors. The blue or bruised color is a buildup of blood which will be absorbed by itself in a few weeks depending on the size.
Meanwhile, keep your wounds clean, try not to be exposed to water to dry them quickly, consume more fruits and vegetables such as spinach, kale, mustard greens, as well as protein-rich foods such as eggs, milk, yogurt, tofu, tempeh, soybeans, seafood, beef and chicken breast. Avoid squeezing or pressing on your wound. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
