Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Impaired wound healing can be caused by many possibilities. Diabetes is one of the diseases that can cause healing disorders in wounds, but can not be diagnosed only by symptoms of wounds that are difficult to heal. The following are some other possible causes of wound healing disorders:
Problems with the wound itself, for example the wound has an infection, there is dirt that has not been cleaned inside the wound, there is dead tissue around the wound
Disorders of the veins in the legs (for example there are disorders of the veins or narrowing of arteries)
Certain autoimmune diseases (such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, scleroderma)
Malnutrition or certain nutritional deficiencies
You should do a doctor's examination if your wound does not heal after 1 month. Drugs such as supertetra are included hard drugs that you should not consume carelessly without going through a doctor's examination first. Consumption of this drug incorrectly can increase the risk of side effects and also resistance to this drug.
For now, there are a number of things you can do:
Clean your wounds daily by using sterile saline.
Rub the area around the wound or pus contained in the wound using sterile gauze slowly and carefully while continuing to be watered with sterile saline
Dry the wound with just aerated
Apply the ointment (if it has been prescribed by your doctor)
Cover the wound with sterile tape or gauze to avoid excessive friction on the wound
Do the steps above every day, or do it more often if the plaster / gauze is wet because it is exposed to water, sweat, or wet with pus from the wound.
Make sure you wash your hands thoroughly with soap before and after treating the wound
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
