I have a bad scrape on the skin of where

Patient: I have a bad scrape on the skin of where I bend my ankle and I can’t move it because if I do, the it may break open, what do I do?

 

 

Doctor: Hello thanks for your health query on ATD.If the area is thickened, you dip your feet in warm water for 10 minutes, followed by application of petroleum jelly. Do this twice daily. If it is associated with itching you can also take Tab Zyrtec 10 mg once a day.Hope it will help you.
