Hi Reynaldo26,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Small, superficial skin lesions generally heal on their own to form a scab. Under normal conditions, this scab will slowly dry out and peel off by itself so that the injured skin will return to its normal smoothness. Often times, there is a change in skin color, it can become lighter (hypopigmented) or darker (hyperpigmented) after the scab peels off.


As for sores, they can become watery and won't dry, usually due to infection. This infection is prone to occur in wounds that are large, deep enough, and are not properly maintained. In addition, the patient's immune system is not optimal coupled with improper wound care (for example using drugs or other therapies without consulting a doctor) can also aggravate this condition.


If you don't get proper treatment, infection in the sores can cause the wound to heal longer. It is not impossible, the size of the wound will get bigger and the infection can spread to the area around the wound or even to other organs.


Therefore, get the wound checked directly to a doctor. The doctor will likely treat your wound, then provide appropriate treatment, for example with antibiotics to eradicate the bacteria that cause the infection. However, if the wound is large or deep, suturing can also be performed to optimize wound closure.


In the meantime, you should not use drugs (including ointments) carelessly, unless you have consulted directly with a doctor. Clean your wound simply by using a clean gauze soaked with antiseptic solution (povidone iodine). Avoid covering the wound, unless a doctor recommends it. Always keep the wound clean, not wet, and not subject to excessive friction, including by not wearing clothes that are too tight.


Hope it helps ..
