Is It Normal If The Skin Around The Wound Feels Itchy?
So I just fell off the motor and for about a week the scabs finally came off and the skin was still pink and the skin sometimes felt itchy, which when touched just a little itched once and there were a few small lumps that I felt also made itchy, was that normal or was it normal? There is something?
Hello, thanks for the question.
Itching of the wound is part of the normal wound healing process. Skin that is injured, its development is still not perfect so that it can become more sensitive and can cause itching. Apart from the healing process of wounds, excessive itching can be caused by other causes such as infections (for example due to sharpening, bacteria, viruses, mites), irritation (for example due to soap, ointments), or other diseases, such as iclavus, psoriasis, lichen planus, neurodermatitis, etc. To ensure the healing process of the wound and the cause of the complaint, you should consult a doctor about the complaint that you are experiencing. The doctor will conduct an examination and can determine possible causes and appropriate treatment. To reduce complaints, we recommend:
Clean scabs and cuts on the skin of the feet with a sterile gauze cloth that has been moistened with intravenous fluids (NaCl) or antiseptic solution (povidone iodine) Always maintain personal hygiene by diligently bathing and washing feet Avoid scratching the wound or sores area Make sure the feet and socks are dry and use footwear that is clean, dry, and suitable for your feet, avoid using footwear that are too narrow Avoid direct contact between the skin of the foot with detergents, or other irritating substances Thus, hopefully it helps.
