Exhaust Wound Care?
Afternoon, I want to ask … if we are experiencing burns due to exhaustion, can we get water while bathing ?? or should be avoided.
Burns can occur when the skin is exposed to hot temperatures, such as exhaust. When the skin comes into contact with the exhaust, it can cause redness, pain, swelling, and blisters. When did you get exhausted and what maintenance did you do?
How extensive is the burn? Is it blistered? If you are exposed to exhaust or other burns that are not too heavy and not extensive, you can do the following tips first:
Immediately run with clean water, for example from tap water for 20-30 minutes. Avoid all clothes and jewelry from the burn site Use loose clothing so you don't rub the burn. Keep the burns from getting exposed to the sun. Apply a burn ointment sold in pharmacies. Avoid applying other ingredients in burns other than burn ointments from doctors or those sold in pharmacies If the wound is blistered, try not to break the blister You are advised to keep showering, but as much as possible keep the burn dry, if the wound is exposed to water, you should immediately dry with sterile gauze carefully If you leave the house and the burn has the potential to get dirt or dust, cover the wound with sterile gauze, if it is not potentially dirty it can be left open If the burn is extensive, the burn blister breaks, or the wound becomes festering, I suggest that you check with your doctor first so that you can do further tests for mema stikan the condition of the wound and the doctor can provide the right treatment for you. The doctor may perform wound care and provide medicines for you according to your condition.
