In the morning I wanted to ask, my mother had second degree burns, was taken to the doctor, injected, and given ointment and then bandaged, then given antibiotics cemfixime and AS. mefenamic, and silver sulfadiazine ointment … after that, in addition to taking antibiotics at home, they were told to clean and apply the ointment every day, before that there were liquid bubbles but a little but on the third day the use of the dry black scar ointment formed liquid bubbles, so that the liquid bubbles became liquid. increase in number and size .. Should the use of the ointment be continued or replaced with another ointment? And how is the healing process that occurs in second degree burns?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The severity of the burn is determined based on the extent, degree, and which part of the body has been burned. A second degree burn indicates that the damage has reached the epidermis to the dermis. This condition is characterized by red, watery, and fluid-filled skin (blisters). If the burned skin is pressed, it can cause very intense pain due to disturbance of the nerves around the affected skin.
Depending on the extent and area of the body that has burns, your mother's condition can be treated by administering drugs, pain medication, anti-fever, tetanus shots, antibiotics, rehydration therapy to prevent excessive fluid loss due to damaged skin, and also providing burn creams or ointments which are useful in optimizing healing, maintaining moisture, and also increasing skin regeneration.
As for the burn marks that appear blackened, blistered, and expanded your mother may have been related to the development of her burns. Or, it could be, this complaint occurs related to inflammation due to the use of certain drugs, for example due to allergies or irritation.
Doctors who examine your mother in person will certainly know better about which conditions their patients are currently experiencing. Therefore, you should go back to check with your mother to a doctor or plastic surgeon to get the right treatment. Avoid stopping medication or administering other drugs without the knowledge of the examining doctor so that your mother's complaints don't get worse.
The healing process for second degree burns can vary, depending on the area of the body affected and what part of the body is involved. If the extent of the burns your mother experienced is insignificant and does not involve any vital organs, then this condition rarely causes serious complications. But back again, consult this directly with the doctor who treats your mother directly, huh ..
In the meantime, you should help your mother treat her complaints by applying the medicine from the doctor as directed. Also, keep the burns clean and free from harmful substances that can trigger irritation or infection. Also give your mother enough drinking and foods high in calories and protein to support her healing.
Hope it helps ..
