The Wound, The Breast Lump That Was Cracked, Never Dried Up?
At noon, I had a complaint, at that time I had a lump in my breast then the lump burst and became a wound then I went to an alternative with herbal treatment for the wound, but the wound was still wet for a month. So how about it better for me to take antibiotics, what do I do? Please answer yes. Thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. In treating wounds, there are many things that must be considered, including how to prevent bacteria from infecting the wound. This is important because when a wound occurs, the skin, which acts as a protective organ behind it from bacteria and viruses, is damaged, so that the body is very exposed and is easily exposed to disease-causing agents. Therefore it is also important to treat any kind of wound by prioritizing the hygiene or cleanliness of the wound.
If your wound is difficult to heal and dries up, this could be a sign that the treatment given to your wound has not been good or optimal, or that you may have another physical condition that is preventing the wound from healing, such as diabetes or high blood sugar levels, or lack of blood clotting factors.
To find out this, we strongly recommend that you check with a surgeon specialist for further examination. Your surgeon will determine whether or not you need to take antibiotics after seeing first-hand your wound and its tendency to become infected with bacteria. Your surgeon will also likely re-clean your wound and close it to further avoid getting bacteria or viruses through the wound.
Meanwhile, avoid applying or consuming anything that is claimed to accelerate wound healing without a doctor's recommendation / prescription. Keep the wound area clean, and avoid exposure to water, and increase the consumption of high-protein foods such as eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt, soybeans, tempeh, sea fish and beef. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
