Postoperative injuries require periodic maintenance until the wound heals. The scars themselves need to be kept clean so as not to pose a risk of infection which can hinder the healing process and can cause new problems such as surgical site infections. Surgical wound infection itself arises in the area of the stitches or surgical incisions marked with reddish, painful, sore, hot, sore swellings, a long healing process, fever, pus or even an unpleasant odor or can release fluid that can seep out of bandages.
The causes are varied such as old age, have a history of other diseases such as cancer, diabetes, obesity, immune system disorders, smokers, the location of scars in the abdomen, so that wound interactions can occur with germs both on the skin, air, or hands when wound care is done .
For this reason, if it arises so, it is necessary to carry out surgical wound care and further management of both oral medication and topical medication. the wound also needs to be cleaned and replaced with bandages every day and kept clean, if it is more severe, invasive procedures can be performed to clean the infected surgical scars. Immediately check your husband's condition back to the doctor to assess the condition of the wound and given appropriate treatment. It is also important to maintain a healthy condition and nutrition to help the healing process.
