Take Amoxicillin Medicine When Your Hand Is Torn?
Hello … I want to ask. I have a torn wound. And the medicine that my parents recommend is AMOXCILIN. What is that, bro?
Good morning, thanks for the question
A torn wound has the potential to cause germ contamination so that the wound can become infected and require antibiotic therapy for treatment. Uninfected wounds will heal gradually until the wound has completely closed within a few days. While infected wounds tend to heal longer and can be found complaints of persistent pain and redness. If the infection continues, it can produce pus from the wound followed by symptoms of fever.
Minor injuries are generally sufficient to require wound cleansing with an antiseptic solution, then the wound is smeared with topical antibiotics and then covered with a sterile bandage until the wound will close and heal gradually. If the infection is not treated with self-care as mentioned above, then you should do further consultation with your doctor for a direct examination.
Antibiotics can not be taken arbitrarily before an examination by a doctor to assess the severity of the infection and the location of the infection due to the nature and way of working different antibiotics.
That's all, hope you can help.
