How Long Does The Wound Fall On The Asphalt Heal?
, I have fallen from the motorbike for 10 days, the small wound was pointed at the top of the right bend of the index finger, now I was washed with clean water initially, I immediately applied bioplacenton so the drah stopped, and became dry, but sometimes it came out clear liquid around the biplacenton area which dries earlier, well, I closed it using a handsaplast. but instead itchy, so I opened, the dry bioplacenton was raised and looked like flesh or white skin gt. well but the liquid may be a lot. and dries up. then the next day I washed using sterile gauze using warm water which I mixed with strong acid, now the liquid that came out was not too much and not too much liquid that clotted above again, only the edge area sometimes when I move it like peeling gt, but dry to top, is this included infection or already in the healing stage huh? Bye what should I do? thank you
Hello Nunik, thank you for your question to HealthReplies.com
Treatment of abrasions is actually not too difficult. You simply wash the wound well so that there is no dust or sand attached to the wound, so that the blisters do not get dirty, do not get wet for a long time, and do not rub away so that they heal faster. You also need to know that abrasions that occur in the joint area (including also in the joints of the fingers) may heal longer because of the many movements that occur in the joints that can inhibit wound healing. The use of antiseptic drugs such as povidone iodine or alcohol is also not recommended for treating wounds because it can actually inhibit wound healing. I do not understand what strong acids you use to wash wounds (strong acids have various types, for example HCl, HBr, HI, HNO3, H2SO4, etc.), but strong acids are very, very dangerous when used directly on the skin because it can cause skin burns. The use of strong acids in wounds can actually cause wounds to become enlarged or further irritated.
In general, blisters will dry up and heal within 3-7 days for small blisters or 1-2 weeks for large and deep blisters. Some signs of injury are infected, among others:
pus or foul-smelling discharge from the wound
the wound becomes increasingly painful
the skin around the wound appears swollen, red, and painful
If there are no such signs, then it is possible that your abrasions have begun to heal. When the wound starts to heal and scab appears, it is possible that the wound will itch, but avoid scratching the wound or peeling off the scab that has formed so that the skin does not hurt again or the scar appears.
Here are the articles that you can read about the treatment of open wounds
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
