I advice you to be on medication to treat filarial leg swelling.
is standard treatment of choice for Fiarial disease
2) Tab.Doxycycline 200mg twice a day for 2 weeks
You can consult any physiotherapist, he will teach him some exercises and there are many physiotherapy
modalities which will reduce the swelling. You can follow some of my suggestions.
1. Elevate the leg while sleeping by keeping pillow just bellow the ankle.
2. Do not sit with the leg hanging, You can keep your leg on a stool.
3. Lie down flat then stretch your ankle towards your face and then take it back. It is called as ankle dorsiflexion
and plantar flexion exercise.
I Hope I Provided Useful Information. Do ask Furthur Questions to help You get well soon.
