چوٹ اور چوٹ کے نشانات
After an injury it is common for somebody to get a bump or a bruise.
Bumps and bruises may not appear straightaway, but the skin can still feel painful, swollen
and tender. Bumps are swellings under the surface of the
skin caused by fluid. And bruises are purple or bluish patches caused
by tiny blood vessels that burst into the soft tissue.
Bruises usually change to a greenish
or yellowish colour as they heal.
How to treat? First Aid:
To treat a bump or a bruise, you need to apply
something cold to the skin. If you just hold that on there .
This will reduce the pain and help it to heal. If you haven’t got an icepack you could
use frozen peas or ice wrapped up in a cloth, but remember, don’t leave it on for any
longer than 10 minutes. If the bump or bruise is very painful then
ask the casualty to lie down and raise the injury above the level of their heart. This
will reduce the swelling. If the bump or bruise becomes very painful
or very swollen, then seek medical advice or go to hospital.
