Swelling

Posted , 3 users are following.

Having trouble getting swelling down. Injury occured a week ago. Had ice on it 3 times a day and had it elevated. Also had tubigrip on it and the swelling just hasn't gone down at all.

Does anyone have any advice?

Thanks

    The wisest and most practical thing is to see a doctor.  Or go to hospital for an x-ray, for all you know you could have fractured something. A tubgrip should not be used to contain an undiagnosed swelling. You could be doing more harm than good
