What causes swelling and bruising on hand after a cut in the artery? - Online Doctor Chats
I cut myself on glass a few days ago and I'm sure it cut a artery cause it was squirting blood...The bleeding stopped after ten minutes...feeling has returned to my hand...but the cut is swallon...sensitive and my forearm had brusing...will my artery die? Or is it just going to heal on its own..swelling has been decreasing
If it was squirting blood, it is highly likely that an artery was cut
decreasing swelling is a good sign
but we will still have to prevent any infection
Returning sensations means that the artery has sealed itself
I hope you did visit an ER and got the wound sutured
otherwise you will need to consult your doctor to see if there is any infection
are you there?
Been using neoporne. ..forearm is slightly yellow after some brusing has gone away...did not go to the er. Don't have insurence...will this sealed artery cause future problems? And how long before I can go to the gym and apply stress to it? I don't wanna bust the artery
You will need to give it at least 2 months time before you can go to the gym
Any future problems from this cut? And loss of this blood flow from artery?
I sincerely hope you don't have nay ifection
If it heals well then you can be sure that is will not cause any future problems
but it should heal without getting infected
that is most important right now
How can I tell if it's infected
I would not be able to tell you about how bad the injury was... there is no way of knowing that as I have not seen the wound
What does yellow on my forearm mean
And the brusing
and if you get any fever, that means the wound is infected
otherwise it will heal
Yellow means that the bleeding that happened when you got the cit is getting absorbed
yellow is not worrying
if tuns red
and if the swelling gets worse then you will need to see a doctor
What happens to the sealed off artery? Will I forever have less blood flow to my hand now?
It is unfortunate that you can not get healthcare without insurance
No, the sealed off artery means only the damaged part of it will seal itself
the blood flow will be maintained
don't worry about these now
first get your wound healed
and prevent it from getting infected
because if it gets infected, it can become fatal
is there anything else you would like to ask me?
For real and this free Obama care is gonna cost me money...any other home remedies you can recommend for he infection prevention? NNeosprine is all i got...8m letting the wound dry at the moment in the free air
let the wound dry
don't let any water fall on the wound at any cost
Keep the wound clean
and you can clean the wound with these
after you clean the wound you can apply the neosporin ointment and apply the bandage
So a fevor is the first sign of infection?
if you get fever and pus in the wound that means it is infected
is there anything else I can do for you?
No pus at all so far...wound appears to be closing...no wet red blood...no discoloring...so I should take it easy? When using my hand I can feel slight pain...is this because of the artery streching?
The wound seems to healing well
the pain is not because of the artery
it is because of the wound itself
Cause whenever my heart starts to rise I feel it more...Also should I stay away from alcohol during this time? Drinking lot of water?
you should drink adequate amounts of water
avoid alcohol and smoking
smoking and alcohol will delay the healing process
Will do...are there any over the counter anti biotic you could suggest?
There are no over the counter antibiotics at all
All antibiotics are prescription only
You can apply that neosporin
it is a good antibiotic cream
Thanks for consulting me here
have a good day ahead
