Customer Question
Tripped over a 1.5...

Tripped over a 1.5 ft wall and slammed/scrapped my shin two weeks ago. for some reason my ankle swelled and bruising on inside of my foot. mild pain when I tough my shin. When will this go away? I went to urgent care when I first started feeling discomfort and they said my cut may have been infected (warm to touch) and gave me antibiotics.

Doctor's Assistant: The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?

Nope. just want to know if its normal that swelling sticks around for a couple of weeks or more

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

It may take little longer to heal.

Infection likely gone with antibiotics.

You can apply a steroid ointment like hydrocortisone to reduce inflammation there.

Not serious.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
