My left hand is swelled up


My left hand is swelled up and has extreme when my hand is in the downward position just hanging by my side.  I don't know if it is just badly bruised or if I have a fracture or break?  Any information will be helpful.

If this sudden onset, Immediately get medical attention. This may be cellulitis of hand. It can permanently damage nerves of the hand.

I was bitten by a centipede about 4 inches long

I was bitten by a centipede about 4 inches long, i dont have any hives nor numbness, burning sensation experienced but i did have a difficulty in breathing my bp is around 90/60. I cant afford to go to hospital for check up so i decided to search on internet.


Take paracetamol 1g 6hourly.  If the pain is not responding take diclofenac sodium 50mg thrice daily with omeprazole 20 mg twice.
Rub the affected area with hot water. This will destroy the venom. Do not worry if you did not got any allergic reaction then it wont affect your body.
