How To Deal With An Infected Little Finger Due To Being Pinched?
, I want to ask. I have a nephew aged 6th. 1 week before Hari Raya, her little finger was stuck in the door, and it turned out that her mother was only given betadine once. Finally, when I went home together I just found out and the condition of his hands already had pus in them, then the skin became black like blisters. Finally, when I arrived in the village, the initiative was taken to the village midwife because the general practitioner was very far away. For 4 hours sleeping in the village, I routinely took antibiotic syrup and there was another one, I forgot the name and also the ointment that can be used as a village midwife. Finally, the one that was like a long blister dried up, flattened, and the skin was peeling. Since I returned to Surabaya alone, my nephews and sisters didn’t participate, so I don’t know what the conditions are. After that, on 27 June my nephew stayed at home, I was surprised to see the condition of his hand as before before going to the village midwife. Worse, it spreads a little down. How yes, what drugs are safe and good to overcome like that
The condition of the festering wound should be checked by the nearest doctor. The condition of the presence of pus in the scar plus there is a possibility that it worsens (spreads) can be due to secondary (additional) infection in the wound.
Treatment of infection will be adjusted to the severity of the infectious disease. Generally, antibiotic treatment will be needed. Regarding the type of antibiotic that is suitable and best for your nephew's condition, it can only be given after the doctor has conducted a complete examination of the condition.
For first aid you can do some simple steps such as =
Keep the wound dry and clean by regularly cleaning the wound with sterile water or an antiseptic.
Get enough nutritional needs.
Dress the wound and cover with sterile gauze.
Take medicine as directed by your doctor.
Consult your nephew's condition to the doctor. Make sure to carry out wound care thoroughly and thoroughly so that the condition does not recur. Routine control to the doctor if the wound does not improve.
I hope this helps.
