    You could do, but normally with bruising or swelling it's best to let the air get to it and keep things as normal as possible. x

    Re: Feeling sorry for myself

    So I had to go to urgent care because I took the plaster off and it was hot, red & a bit green . I had a temperature too.

    Theyíve given the cut a thorough clean & given it a new dressing, and given me a course of antibiotics.

    They didnít seem bothered by the fact I canít move my knee much, itíll hopefully just go down soon. I hope that the infection clears up quickly too.

    That's probably part of why you can't do much with it. Infections can be painful and the swelling will likely be worse for it.

    A couple of days on the meds should help though. Once they kick in you might find the pain substantially decreases as much of that can be the infection. I found that with an infected thumb from a gardening cut and my broken wisdom tooth. Once burst or the infection killed off the relief was bliss!

    Time to reward yourself and relax.
