Wound Care Question - swelling

I cut a lot on my forearm yesterday and now it is swollen and kinda hard to the touch and hot. Why is that? How can I get the swelling to go down?

We're all in the same game;
Just different levels.
Dealing with the same hell;
Just different demons.

Infection? The Infection Guide is here. Might be worth getting it checked if you can.

Hope you're okay.

It doesn't matter where you come from; it matters where you go.
No-one gets remembered for the things they didn't do.
We won't all be here this time next year,
so while you can take a picture of us.
We're definitely going to hell,
but we'll have all the best stories to tell.

How're the cuts doing now? Has the swelling gone down? This can be totally normal for a couple of days after a cut and often an infection doesn't start until about 3 days after (as it takes that long for the bacteria to get fully established) but sometimes it can occur earlier. If it's now improved rather than worsened then I'd put it down to the normal healing process and just carrying on looking after a wound as you normally would. If it's worsened however then I advise that you go and get it checked out.
