How To Treat Suppurating Lips From Being Bitten To Bleed?
Good evening, I want to ask Yesterday I fell from the motorbike, the position of my lips biting until I bled, and now my lips are festering. So how to treat and so that the scars disappear? Thanks.
Hello Ms. Asri, thank you for consulting us at HealthReplies.com.
Trauma to the mucosa or soft tissue inside the mouth is very potential for bacterial infections that can cause swelling, thrush, or even torn trauma that gives rise to pus. Pus that appears on your lips indicates that there has been a bacterial infection that is triggered due to trauma so that the mucosa becomes damaged and tissue protection against something foreign from the outside becomes disrupted.
For treatment, basically is to maintain oral and dental hygiene, namely by brushing your teeth regularly and you can accompany mouthwash that can cleanse the mouth optimally from germs that may enter with food or drink. In addition you can meet your intake of vitamin C either from supplements or from fruits that are orange. Avoid foods that contain lots of oil or are fried. If the treatment at home is still no improvement, then you should consult and check with your doctor or dentist. Thus we can convey, hopefully our information can be useful for you. thanks.
