Sooner or later the healing of a wound is not only affected by the wound itself. There are several factors in the condition of the body, such as whether the blood vessels and oxygenation are in good condition to the area of the wound or whether there is a certain disease that can make the wound not get better. Other conditions that can slow wound healing include:
Malnutrition / malnutrition
And other conditions
If the wound has not improved, it can be checked and discussed with a general surgeon, so that your nephew can then do further examinations, namely physical examination, laboratory examination, etc. So that the cause of the complaint experienced by your nephew can be known and can be given further treatment. Here are some things you can do for wound care:
Clean the wound with nacl / intravenous fluids
Give antibiotic ointment according to what your doctor has ordered
Keeping it so that the wound is not dirty and wet, avoid getting wet
Don't scratch the wound
The wound can be covered with sterile gauze
Wash your hands first before cleaning the wound
