Abrasion of the thigh is usually caused by direct contact with a rough surface, such as a pavement or a road. It can also be caused by contact with clothing or objects with a rough texture.
Abrasion of the thigh can usually be diagnosed by a physical examination. The doctor will look for signs of redness, swelling, and pain in the affected area.
Other conditions that can cause similar symptoms include friction burn, allergic contact dermatitis, and contact dermatitis.
Treatment for abrasion of the thigh typically involves cleaning the wound and then applying an antibiotic ointment. The wound should also be covered with a sterile dressing. Pain relief medications may be prescribed if necessary.
Abrasion of the thigh usually heals within a few days to a few weeks. In most cases, the skin heals without complications. However, if the wound becomes infected, it may take longer to heal.
