The Wound From The Gatel Surgery And Appears Like A Boil?
Hello, I want to ask, when in 2016 I had a hand-grown meat operation. yesterday the ops itchy and I scratched it so that it appeared like a boil that had broken on the stitches. And until now itchy. Could you please ask me what to do and is it dangerous?
Hello Arianti, thank you for asking.
When the skin is injured, both due to injury or due to surgery, then during healing, skin tissue in the injured area will be replaced with scar tissue. In some people, scar tissue can grow wide to form keloids. Scar tissue can also be darker in color than the surrounding tissue. In some people, scarring can feel itchy or painful. it can last for months or even years.
Scratching what you do on the scar tissue may cause an infected blister wound, causing itching or burning. Avoid scratching the area further. Keep nails short and hands always clean so as not to trigger more severe infections. You can check the skin to a general practitioner for a detailed examination. The doctor may clean the area and prescribe the ointment as indicated. Please do not apply anything before getting a doctor's recommendation. Regarding the danger or not, a physical examination must be done first so that the possibility can be determined.
Thus my brief info, hopefully can help. Regards.
