Gauze And Antibiotics Attached To The Scar?
I want to ask so first I fell off the bicycle then treated by my brother using a suppratule and then given cotton, after that the next day I was released and not knowing there was a little supratule attached to my wound until the supratule was hardened. What should I do?
Good evening, thanks for the question
The gauze with the antibiotic content that you mentioned above can indeed dry out if exposed to air. If the gauze dries and attaches to the wound, it should be removed. To be able to release the gauze can be flowed using a sterile liquid, such as intravenous fluids, so that the gauze becomes moist again so it is easy to be removed from the wound surface. Gauze will be difficult to remove if it is dry and can cause pain. If you have difficulty you should consult with a doctor to be able to do these actions.
That's all, hope you can help.
