Are you taking any medicine?
Hello again,I was waiting for your reply.It is possible that there is an inflamed vein or phlebitis.There are 2 types of phlebitis.In superficial phlebitis, you can try home measures like antiinflammatory medicine or motrin, warm compression.In some cases of superficial phlebitis, if the doctor suspects of extension of clot deeper in the tissue, then anticoagulant is also needed.But in deep phlebitis or deep vein thrombophlebitis, you have to go to ER to start treatment urgently. Anticoagulant will be required.Duplex ultrasound, blood test like d-dimer test etc. will be required to assess the condition.I would suggest to take an examination by doctor urgently.I hope this information helps.If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.Regards.
