Cause of swelling must be ruled out E.g Thyroid dysfunction, varicose vein, filarias, Renal disorder, Anemia,, Excessive steroid use, Heart failure than decide about Rx

My entery is late but expressing my views There are two contradictory points 1 facial puffiness well understood can be steroid induced 2 swelling with oozing lesions in lower limbs So if pt has recieved steroid specificaly for which indication if swelling with lesions are already there it may have aggravated bcz of water retention There is h/o dysponea is it a primary complaint or induced after steroids So far lesions with swelling are concerned need to know whether pt has varicose earlier or dvt Is pt is obese over wt or diabetic I feel before answering for lesions we need to work out and investigate completely. Thanx

Thanks

1.Facial puffiness well understood can be steroid induced. 2. Swelling with oozing lesions in lower limbs. If patient has received steroid specifically for which indication if swelling with lesions are already there it may have aggravated because of water retention. To know the lesions are concern need to know whether patient has varicose earlier or dvt. Lesions need to know and investigate completely.

Even though history is short, she has evidence of chronic eczema of the feet. Secondary infection is a possibility. Diabetes, anaemia, varicose veins should be ruled out. Advised RFT.
