Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Injury is an injury that results in damage to body tissue and generally occurs in the skin. One of them, the wound can be caused by contact with hot objects. Minor injuries can heal on their own with just treatment at home. This wound healing will go through several stages, namely:
1. Stage of inflammation. Initially the blood vessels will narrow and blood clots cells clot in the wound area. As a result the bleeding can stop. Then, blood vessels will dilate to drain blood into the injured area. So that the wound area feels warm, swollen, and reddish.
2. Fibroblastic stage. This stage is the stage of formation of scar tissue.
3. Maturation stage. Collagen production continues to grow so that the damaged tissue recovers slowly. The maturation process can take months or even years. This is why the longer the scars fade.
From this stage, it is clear that it is natural for your wounds to become red and itchy. This is a normal form of inflammation in wounds that are undergoing repair. However, if the wound is accompanied by pus, indicates that the wound is infected with bacteria. In this condition, you should consult the wound with the nearest doctor so that the wound can be cleaned. Then the doctor will give antibiotic skin ointment.
