Taboo Food For Sufferers Who Have Abrasions?
I want to ask you, so a few weeks ago I fell so badly on my knees that I hurt a lot. Then my friend said that if you eat soy sauce, eggs, meat, it can make your leg wound blacken. So is it a fact or a myth. Thxx 😁
Hello Jolyne, thank you for asking Alodoker.
In general, there are no dietary restrictions for people with abrasions. Precisely when injured, the body needs a lot of protein to build repair of damaged cells and tissues in the blistered body. So it takes the consumption of foods that contain lots of protein such as eggs, meat, chicken, or other vegetable protein sources. Until now, there is no research that states that soy sauce can make wounds black. The blackening of the scar depends on how the wound is treated. If wound care is carried out properly and carefully, in the sense of using drugs recommended by doctors, and not using first aid drugs which are very fatal in most people such as the use of balms, oil, gasoline, toothpaste, etc., then the possibility the healing of the abrasion will be good and will not leave scars.
Here are tips you can do to clean wounds properly and cleanly:
Clean the wound using NaCl liquid or clean water
Use sterile gauze to clean the wound, avoid using cotton because cotton fibers can stick to the wound and become a source of infection
Do cleaning the wound by tapping the dirt or blood in the wound and avoid cleaning the wound by rubbing the wound because it will cause the blister to become worse
Apply antibiotic ointment to the wound as directed, and make sure your hands are washed before applying the ointment
If the wound has the potential to be exposed to dust or dirt, then cover the wound with sterile gauze and change the gauze regularly, and leave the wound open if you are at home / not traveling
If the wound does not have the potential to get dirt, then leave it open so that the wound dries quickly and heals quickly
If the wound care has been carried out properly but you still feel pain in the wound, or pus appears in the wound, or you feel a fever / chills, then I suggest that you immediately see a doctor so that you get proper and proper treatment so that the wound is infected. does not spread bacterial infections into your blood which can lead to systemic infectious diseases.
That's all from us, hopefully it's useful. Thanks.
