Inflamed Wounds Did Not Heal For 4 Months After The Accident?
Hello doctor. I’m 18 years old from Aceh. I wanted to ask the doctor about the injuries I had during the accident. Akhin 1 month yesterday I was injured and my injuries were quite a lot but not too bad. Approximately now it has been almost 4 months, only 1 wound that has not healed has swollen. At first I thought it was okay because the wound looked dry but swollen and when I was sweating it itchy and hurt when I touched the shirt and my wound turned red. Because I was afraid of a dangerous infection I went to the doctor yesterday. He said: “This wound is already inflamed, possibly due to the application of bioplasenton ointment too quickly, so the growth of the hormone tissue is too fast. You can do surgery for this because it will not happen that the lump will get bigger in this wound.” Indeed, my wound is no longer wet and is closed like a membrane. Besides the wound, sometimes there is a small lump like chickenpox filled with pus. After being given medicine and ointment by the doctor yesterday, my wounds became less annoying and the pus-like lumps could no longer be seen. But I’m still worried that maybe this wound will need surgery to heal. What should I do to know what steps to take next ?? Is this wound really dangerous to have surgery ??
Wounds that do not heal> 4 months do need to be examined carefully. Ideally, a wound that is properly cared for without complications should get better at least 2 weeks to 4 weeks.
It is necessary to know the causes of wounds arising, how the treatment was carried out and whether there were any internal or external complications that caused the wound to be difficult to heal.
Generally wounds can have difficulty healing in cases such as =
Diabetes mellitus. Blood vessel disorders, where the blood supply is disrupted to the area of the wound so that the wound is slow to heal. Infection. Inadequate treatment. Of course you need to see a doctor for optimal examination and treatment. With good wound care, inflamed wounds can immediately improve. Surgery certainly needs to be considered carefully. Seek a second opinion from other doctors about your condition.
Maintain clean wound conditions, eat balanced nutrition and carry out regular consultations with the doctor for optimal wound care.
I hope this helps.
