Hello Ayra, thank you for asking the HealthReplies.com team.
Wounds are broken skin tissue. Wound healing varies depending on the type of wound, wound care, and health condition of the person. Mild abrasions generally do not require special treatment, whereas torn or severe cuts generally require special treatment from a doctor. Improper wound handling will cause infection so that wound healing becomes longer or even heavier. Some things you can do to treat wounds at home include:
Wash hands before and after handling the wound
Clean the wound with running water or sterile infusion fluid in the wound area, compress the wound with sterile gauze moistened with intravenous fluid or antiseptic fluid for approximately 10-15 minutes.
Apply an antibiotic cream or ointment that the doctor has prescribed
If the wound is open and not yet dry, cover the wound with a bandage to keep the wound clean, if the wound is dry and only a blister, the bandage is not necessary.
Keep the wound area clean, avoid wet or dirty wounds
Avoid using sprinkles or powder on the wound
If the wound does not improve after routine treatment or is getting burdensome, you should consult your doctor for wound care at the health service. The doctor will do a thorough examination and additional examinations if done. Handling can be given by giving wound cleansing fluids, antibiotic drugs, ointments, and other medicines. It is better to keep on doing a healthy lifestyle, eating healthy and nutritious food, fulfilling fluid needs, and getting enough rest so that wound healing can be maximized.
so, hopefully it helps.
