The Stitches Are Still Wet After 11 Days?
. I had a disaster. My feet are exposed to zinc. Causes injury. And must be sewn. After sewing, 7 stitches I always control and never get water, so 11 days, my stitches are opened. And the wound is still wet, and not tight at all. How should I do. Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Fast or slow wound healing process can be influenced by many factors. One of the factors that can be clearly observed is the cleanliness of the wound, its area, and depth. If the zinc that hurt you previously was dirty, this can make your wound dirty too so healing can be hampered. Furthermore, types of wounds that have irregular borders (eg lacerations) can also cause skin union to last longer. In addition, if the wound you experienced earlier is quite extensive and deep, then the healing time is certainly longer.
In addition to the wound factor, there are also many other factors that can make wounds take longer to heal, including:
Inadequate treatment given Genetics (congenital) Blood clotting disorders Immune disorders, for example due to diabetes, HIV/AIDS, long-term use of steroids Malnutrition, etc. We suggest that you go to a surgeon to be evaluated further. your wound. In addition, several other examinations may also be carried out to assess other factors that may hinder the healing process. If necessary, the doctor can perform wound care and re-stitching.
In the meantime, always keep your wound clean and dry. Avoid using pants or footwear that are dirty, wet, or too narrow so as not to make the wound moist. Make sure you eat nutritious and high protein foods to support the wound healing process. Avoid smoking or consuming alcohol.
Hope it helps ya..
