Ulcers In The Legs That Cause Swollen Feet?
About a week my left leg on the front right on the left bone grows boils, not too big but because for the first time it becomes a bit torturous. 3 Days ago I worked in a long sitting position, and it turned out that my left leg had swelled quite large. Is this dangerous or not? And does it have something to do or not? What can I do to reduce the leg swelling?
Good morning, thanks for the question
Inflammation or inflammation in the skin is characterized by symptoms of redness, swelling, pain, and warm touch. Inflammation can be caused by a process of infection with pathogenic or non-infectious organisms. If accompanied by complaints of formation of pus in the wound, it may be caused by a bacterial infection. A history of pressure on the surface of the skin over time may cause minimal injury, but it then becomes the entrance for various pathogenic bacteria that originate from unclean environments.
If it is very painful complaints with swelling and redness, you can cold compress with a clean cloth that is expected to reduce pain complaints. Then do further consultation with your doctor to be given adequate treatment. If it is confirmed that it is caused by a bacterial infection, then treatment requires oral or topical antibiotics according to clinical considerations to eradicate local infections in the skin. Next you need to maintain hygiene around the swollen area, eat nutritious food, and if the boil has ruptured it is necessary to take good care of the wound.
That's all, hope you can help
