Sores On The Skin Of The Stomach That Fester?
, on the skin of my stomach there is a wound that is about 5mm in size. At first it was dry, and without warning the dry skin peeled off because it touched my hands. The wound is now open and it is leaking a little bit of fluid, after I cleaned it, it turns out that there is still a residual fluid like pus thickening in it. I tried massage but it still didn’t come out. The condition of the wound is now like a dug hole. Please diagnosis, thank you.
Previously, it was necessary to ascertain the cause of the wound. Was it scratched, punctured, due to boils, herpes, dermatitis venenata (tomcat bite), scratching or other skin conditions?
When the wound starts to heal it is best to protect the new tissue that has formed from falling back. If the new tissue that is formed is peeled off before it is completely healed, the healing process will start over again.
If there is pus in the wound, it is necessary to ascertain whether the pus is caused by infection in the wound or indeed due to the course of the disease, for example in boils with pus.
I suggest that you check with your doctor first so that you can ascertain the cause of the wound so that you can also get more appropriate treatment. Meanwhile you can treat the wound in the following ways:
Keep the wound dry Clean the wound with NaCl liquid or clean running water Dry the wound with a sterile gauze Apply the ointment the doctor gave (if the wound has a bacterial infection the doctor can give antibiotic ointment) Leave the wound open, if the wound is wide or in the wound can be covered with gauze sterile Avoid touching the wound too often Wash your hands before and after treating the wound If the wound appears muscle or fat, immediately consult a doctor so that it can be done further wound care, for example by suturing the wound The following articles related to the topic of your question:
