Handling Of Abrasions Due To Accidents?
my wound has been 4 days, yesterday around the wound swollen and this morning was runny and reddened. I gave the ax cap white oil on the first day, yesterday I gave the lime cap oil, I cleaned it and gave it betadine I forgot the name of the liquid that I used to clean it because it was already in the first aid kit I got from the office, the bottle was yellow and the liquid also yellow. Is the handler wrong?

Depending on the breadth and depth, post-crash abrasions can heal in a short or slow time. The speed of healing is also influenced by a variety of other factors, including wound care performed, nutritional intake, secondary infections, and so on.
The condition of your wound that looks swollen, runny, and reddish is most likely to indicate an infected wound. This infection usually occurs due to improper wound care, so that makes the wound become moist and become a nest that is ideal for microorganisms that cause infection to multiply. Infection in these wounds can further make the wound heal longer, then swell, runny, reddish, feel pain, itching, festering, and can even cause the sufferer to experience fever and chills.
Infected wounds should be examined directly by a doctor or surgeon in order to get the right treatment. So that microorganisms that cause infections can be eradicated properly, often the doctor will give you several types of drugs. In order for healing to run more optimally, doctors can also do wound care before giving you the right medicine.
For now, you should not handle the wound with your hands or anything dirty. Always clean your wound using a clean gauze moistened with NaCl, do it 1 to 3 times a day, while pressing so that dirt and dead skin cells come up. Always use clean and loose clothing and pants to avoid excessive friction in the wound. Finally, avoid giving any treatment to the wound without doctor's advice.
Hope this helps ...
