Medicine For Treating Open Sores Due To Stones?
3 days ago my sister was injured in the sole of the foot because of the stone and the wound was torn to a large extent but we were so panicked we brought the doctor because it was far from being sewn only given first aid, now the wound was dry but still open, what good medicine for the wound to be closed
Hello Ajeng, Thank you for the question.
Basically, when the wound is healing, the wound will slowly close on its own. There is no treatment that can accelerate the healing process. If the wound is large enough, it is usually necessary to suture the wound. Suturing the wound aims to help heal the wound faster. However, because the wound is not sutured, wound healing can last longer if the wound is large.
What your sister can do is treat the wound well so that the infection can be prevented. Good wound care includes cleaning the wound regularly every 1-2 days, applying antibiotic ointment, and closing the open wound with sterile gauze. Open wounds must be covered with gauze to prevent them from getting dirty and not causing infection. Foot injuries will generally improve slowly in 10-14 days. In addition to good wound care, your sister must also maintain nutritional intake because good nutrition will support optimal wound healing. Don't forget to pay attention to signs of infection such as redness, swelling, pain, pus, or fever. If these signs appear, please advise your parents to check your sister's condition to the doctor. Don't hesitate to consult a doctor if you are still unsure about how to treat a good wound.
In the future, if you experience an open wound, it is recommended that you consult a doctor so that the treatment provided is more appropriate.
I hope this helps.
