ice, antibiotic ointment, bandage
Greetings,How large is the wound? When did it happen? Is there any other symptom? On which part of the leg the wound is?? Is there diabetes or any other significant past illness?Regards.
no diabetes, an no health issues. Wound (gash) is on upper left leg. Happened in yard this afternoon while doing yard word. No other symptoms. Just swollen and painful.
Thank you for the input.You can take analgesics with antiinflammatory actions like motrin or advil to reduce pain and inflammation. Continue antibiotic ointment. It is better to avoid icing as it is an open wound. Oral antibiotic can be required. Try to keep the leg elevated. It can reduce the swelling and inflammation. There can be skin infection. You should get an examination by doctor tomorrow. If you did not get tetanus vaccination recently, you may need tetanus vaccine. If you have any query, please feel free to ask. It will be my privilege to assist you.Regards.
