When should I seek medical care for injuries?

Seeking medical care for an injury isn’t always a no-brainer. Many cuts, scrapes, and other injuries are treatable with basic first aid measures like cleaning the wound, applying antibiotic ointment, and covering it with a sterile bandage. However, it's essential to monitor the injury closely for signs of infection or worsening symptoms, such as:

  • Visible swelling
  • Severe pain
  • Inability to bear weight
  • Deep cuts or wounds
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Oozing pus
