The Cause Of Wounds On The Feet Continues To Wet, Festering Never Dry?
I have a sores on my leg, now the wound is always wet, but if it’s already dry there is pus inside. Then the wound spread even more at my feet. I don’t have diabetes but it’s hard to recover why?
Hello, thanks for the question.
Injury is tissue damage or tissue discontinuity due to trauma / injury, friction, scratching, impact, and so forth. Wounds must be treated appropriately, especially open wounds, because if not handled properly can cause infection. Signs of infection that occur in wounds include wounds that are always wet, festering, painful and reddish even though it has been days after the injury. This infection will make wound healing take a long time. The duration of wound healing varies by individual, depending on the condition of the wound, the cause of the wound, the location, and the health condition of the person. If there is a wound that does not heal for a long time and an infection has occurred it is advisable to take care of the wound in a hospital or in a health care center. This wound care aims to clean the wound, overcome infection, see the condition of the wound, and the healing process so that wound healing is expected to be maximal and not cause complications. Infected wounds, healing can last longer. Wound care that can be done alone at home before or after wound care at the hospital include:
Wash hands before and after cleaning the wound
Routinely clean the wound with gauze moistened with 0.9% NaCl solution or an antiseptic solution such as povidone iodine
Apply the ointment your doctor prescribes to the wound and take medication regularly as directed
Change bandages every day or every bandage dirty / wet
Keep the wound dry
Perform wound control according to the schedule given or at any time when there are complaints about the wound.
Thus, hopefully useful.
