regarding treatment of ankle sprain
when i apply anti inflammatory gel over the ankle and wrap the crepe bandage, i feel burning sensation and i don`t feel the burning sensation when the area has not been covered by anything and is left open...is it normal...? and should i continue wrapping the crepe bandage all the time or should remove it in between...?
Thank you for your question, but I am not sure that I have enough information to provide you appropriate guidance. Can you provide more specifics as to the gel and the crepe bandage?
However, I would use caution since you are complaining of a burning sensation that is only present when the wrap is on which could be caused by a variety of factors.
