Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Contact with ground splashes can cause burns on the skin. Naturally, this burn can cause the skin to become reddish, feel hot and sore, itchy, blistering, swollen, and this swelling can rupture and remove clear fluid. The burns that appear festering usually indicate a secondary infection. This secondary infection is prone to occur if you do not keep your wound clean properly. It could also be that secondary infections occur due to improper handling of burns, as well as immune system that is less than optimal.
We recommend that you do not carelessly use ointments or any medication to treat burns that have a secondary infection. It is feared, the use of ointments or drugs that are not right, it can actually make your wounds worse and more difficult to cure.
Go directly to your doctor's complaint, a dermatologist or a surgeon to be evaluated, what the wound is, and what the best treatment should be to overcome it. Usually, the doctor will perform wound care, coupled with the administration of several types of drugs, including antibiotics if suspected infection is caused by bacteria.
Here are the first steps you can take at this time:
Do not handle burns with your bare hands
Clean your burn using clean gauze moistened with liquid NaCl, press so that the pus comes out, do not rub
Keep the burns dry and clean
Do not close the wound too tight
Not also using cosmetics around burns
Do not carelessly give medication or ointment to the wound without doctor's advice
Hope this helps ...
