Question: How to make ruptured Baker's cyst heal faster? I have a Baker's cyst under my knee, which ruptured recently and leaked into my leg, causing horrible pain in my calf muscle. My GP said that the liquid needs to re-absorb into the tissues and that it can take either days or months... Is there anything I can do/take to make it heal faster? I am already taking Ibuprofen, keeping my leg elevated and massaging it.

Answer: pack it with iodoform gauze. it will promote healing and also help avoid infection. Keep your blood sugar under control if you want to heal faster you can do some upper body exercise while resting in a chair
