Hello Tia,


Thank you for the question.

People with type II diabetes, especially those who are not well controlled by their blood sugar levels, have a higher risk of developing infected wounds and are more difficult to heal. In addition to the result of poor personal hygiene, this disruption in the wound healing process is strongly suspected to occur due to poor blood flow and decreased endurance.


To prevent this condition, diabetic patients with large open wounds need to be treated properly, with suturing, wound care, and administering certain medications. Therefore, patients need to visit the doctor or surgeon directly at the nearest health facility. From this doctor's examination, not only could the wound be treated well to prevent infection, but also the doctor could evaluate more deeply how severe the damage occurred due to the accident.


In the meantime, the open wound can be treated first by:

Clean the wound using sterile gauze moistened with liquid NaCl
Don't close the wound too tight
Don't rub or squeeze excessive wounds
Improve your personal hygiene
Do not carelessly give medicine to wounds without doctor's advice
Control blood sugar by taking anti-diabetic drugs according to doctor's advice

Hope this helps ...
