Hello dear. Welcome to Healthcaremagic. I read your query and I understand your concern. Here are the steps for getting the pain and swelling of a gout
attack under control:
Take an anti-inflammatory medication as soon as possible
Ice and elevate the joint
Drink plenty of fluids ,sodas makes it worse.
can aggravate gout.
Take rest of normal daily activities.
Treatment include colchicine
,steroidal antiinflamatories such as prednisone
can be taken by mouth or injected into an inflamed joint to relieve the pain and swelling of an acute gout attack. They can also be injected systemically if the attack doesn’t respond to other medications. Allopurinol
reduces the production of uric acid. It is often prescribed at a low daily dose at first, with the dose gradually increasing over time. Take care.
