The Use Of Antibiotic Ointments For Torn Wounds In The Chin Of Children
hello, my 5th child fell off, his chin tumbled around 2cm … I cleaned it with hansaplast spray and liquid detol then covered with 3M strips. 1. Do antibiotic ointments need to be treated before 3M is closed? 2. is the next time it is cleaned and replaced 3M 2 times a day or for the first time wait a few days to open the plaster so that the wound is closed first?

Good morning. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The condition of the wound is causing a barrier from the exposed skin so it will be more susceptible to infection related to the use of antibiotics should usually be considered by a doctor if the wound is considered to be helped with antibiotic medication taken but can also be considered by applying topical.
Related to the most common and over-the-counter application of topical use is bacitracin. It can be used in cuts or minor burns by aiming to kill and stop the development of bacteria. However, the use must be properly applied with clean hands, then dried and avoid using too thick. If there are side effects such as rashes, spots, itching and even shortness of breath should be stopped immediately because of possible allergic reactions.
For replacing the gauze can actually be done every 3 days with the condition that the paired is sterile gauze and covered properly, but penggnatian can be faster if it occurs wet, seepage from the wound, or the wound occurs swelling or very painful
Thus information may be useful
