Can The Wound In Diabetics Be Cleaned With Alcohol?
, I want to ask Is the wound of diabetics can be cleaned using alcohol? The goal is that the wound dry quickly. Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically alcohol should only be used to clean wounds at the beginning of an injury (in wounds caused by injuries or accidents), or if you want to do certain actions (such as suturing the wound). Alcohol (and also povidone iodine) is not recommended for use to treat wounds (including diabetic wounds) because these ingredients are known to damage healthy tissue around the wound and slow healing of the wound.
In principle, to heal diabetes wounds, blood sugar control, nutritional control, infection control in the wound must be carried out, and also good wound care together. Just treating the wound without paying attention to blood sugar or giving the right antibiotics to deal with the infection of the wound will not help wound healing. You should immediately take control to the doctor of internal medicine to treat wounds and control of other risk factors so that the wound can heal immediately.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
