Hi,

Good Morning, noted your history of slight swelling on inner side of right elbow, Doctor prescribed Neuflo 90, suggested reference if the swelling does not subside within a week.
The commonest cause of such a swelling near elbow indicates the following:
Synovial thickening due to arthritis.
Accumulation of fluid locally.
Surely you can use the medicine as your Doctor must have thought about the best possible medicine at the moment.
Continue the medicine.
Give rest to the elbow by putting the forearm on a sling.
You can also try steroid on prescription for early recovery if the cause is inflammation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. T. Chandrakant, General Surgeon
