Sores On The Feet That Are Not Dry And Festering?
I want to ask, I have a plastic wound under my foot for almost a month, it hasn’t healed, it has dried up, but after 2 days it tore again and oozes pus, what good medicine is it, it is recommended to check with the doctor, what kind of medicine is given?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
It needs to be clarified beforehand, are the plastic objects that hurt you clean? What do you mean by object?
A torn wound in the skin that does not close but is actually festering needs to be watched out for and treated appropriately. This condition may indicate that the wound is infected. The risk of this infection can increase if the wound you experience is deep and wide. In addition, poor wound hygiene and impaired immunity, for example due to diabetes, HIV/AIDS, or a history of other diseases can also facilitate the occurrence of infection.
Not only wounds that fail to close and festering, people with infections in torn wounds can also experience pain and swelling that is quite severe, it can even cause fever. If not treated properly, it is feared that this infection can spread to the soft tissue around the wound, even to other distant organs.
It's best if you go directly to a surgeon who specializes in surgery. The doctor will likely treat the wound to remove the accumulated pus. In addition, dead tissue around the wound will also be removed so as not to hinder the healing process. Then, you will be given several types of drugs, including antibiotics to eradicate the bacteria that cause the infection. If it feels like the infection has subsided, the doctor can do stitches to close the torn wound on your skin.
In the meantime, you should not touch the festering wound excessively. Clean the pus that comes out using clean gauze that has been moistened with intravenous fluids (NaCl), do this by pressing the area around the wound so that the pus comes out, no need to rub or scrape excessively. Be diligent in washing your feet and avoid using footwear that is too narrow, wet, and dirty.
