LIP WOUND DUE TO THE BREAK THE GLASS?
, want to ask, if your lips are hurt because of broken glass, what medicine should you give it? nThe problem is so difficult to talk and eat
Hi Melvina .. Thank you for the question.
If you have a deep and wide tear, it is better if you consult a doctor. So that doctors can examine directly and can see whether suturing is necessary or only with wound care. If the wound is deep and bleeding a lot, the doctor may recommend suturing and it can be done with absorbable threads so that later the results will be better. However, if the wound does not need to be sutured, routine wound care can be done, such as:
After being injured, clean the wound properly
Avoid touching the wound
Avoid frequent contact with water on the wound
If you have pain, you can take pain medications such as paracetamol according to the dosage
Cover the wound with sterile gauze to prevent the wound from getting dust or dirt
The doctor can give you an antibiotic ointment so you can use it according to the doctor's advice
Avoid foods that are too spicy or sour
Be careful when talking, chewing, and brushing your teeth so you don't hit the injured area
