Hand Wound Management?
, a week ago I fell from a motorcycle and scratched the asphalt. In my palm there was a wound, I cleaned it and now it dries. However, the dry wound is blackish yellowish. Is it okay? Then is there anything I have to do? Then does wound healing tend to last longer?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Black or yellowish dry wounds are the appearance of normal sores, and are more commonly referred to as sores. This is not dangerous, and can improve over time. The black and yellow colors are probably derived from blood that comes out and dries.
What is clear is that you need to do the first time when the wound is making sure the wound is clean from dirt, by flowing clean water on it. This will erode the gravel, soil, dust and other impurities so that you will see the original shape of the wound. Then keep it clean by applying povidone iodine so that the bacteria around it die.
If the mark you are referring to is getting bigger, or has not changed at all from a week ago, such as not getting dry, nothing is loose, or still bleeding or even releasing smelling liquid, our advice we recommend that you consult a doctor so that you are immediately treated furthermore, in the form of suturing if necessary, wound closure and antibiotics.
In addition, there is no need to worry too much, regarding the speed of wound healing will depend on the severity of the wound. To be faster, you can eat foods high in protein such as milk, eggs, cheese, beef, chicken breast and seafood. So, hopefully answering your question.
