Causes And Treatment Of Suppurating Skin?
, when I sleep I scratch my feet until they are blisters. The next day my feet hurt like swelling, I saw that my blisters had pus. I have given the ointment but it hasn’t healed even though it’s been a week. What disease is that?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Previously I want to confirm in advance what ointment you use to treat your wound? Basically, a festering wound indicates the wound has an infection. Infected wounds require treatment with antibiotics, both topical antibiotics (topical) or oral antibiotics (oral medication), depending on the severity of the infection. If indeed the infection is very severe and occurs in deep skin areas (eg cellulitis), then maybe intravenous antibiotic therapy (injection) is also needed. In addition to therapy with antibiotics, wound hygiene must also be considered better. Before performing wound care, you must make sure you have washed your hands thoroughly with soap. Wash the wound using sterile saline solution and rub it gently with sterile gauze to clean pus and dead tissue over the wound. Afterwards dry the wound with just aerated, then cover the wound with wound plaster or sterile gauze. The wound cover must be replaced every day, or replaced immediately if wet with water or pus.
In people who have wounds that are difficult to heal, it must also be considered whether there are other factors that cause impaired wound healing, for example disruption of blood flow to the feet, diabetes, etc. It is better if your wound has not healed for a week, consult yourself to the doctor so that it can be examined directly on your wound and given the right treatment. Therapy using antibiotics (either ointment, oral, or intravenous) can only be given by a doctor because antibiotics are included in hard drugs.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
