Treat Blisters On The Knee Due To Falls?
Good morning, I want to ask, I have abrasions on my legs due to falling, but day after day the wounds turn white, is it okay if left?
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Wound healing occurs through 3 stages, namely:
The inflammation stage, occurring at the beginning of the wound healing process, is characterized by narrowing of the arteries to stop bleeding, accompanied by platelet formation by platelets; Furthermore, the blood vessels will expand to drain the white blood cells into the wound area, causing the wound to appear reddish, feel warm, and swell; white blood cells will come to the injured area to destroy microbes to prevent infection, white blood cells also secrete chemical compounds to help the tissue repair process
The fibroblastic stage, which is the formation of scar tissue after a wound, is characterized by the formation of collagen which pushes the wound edges to close, then small blood vessels (capillaries) begin to form to provide blood supply to the newly formed skin
The maturation stage, marked by collagen production which continues to grow, can last for months to years, the longer the scars will fade
When did you experience the injury? Do not rule out the possibility that changes that appear in your wound mark the process of wound healing at the fibroblastic stage. If the scar is bleeding / pus, swollen, and painful, do not hesitate to see a doctor. To treat a wound, you can take the following steps:
If there is dirt in the scar area, clean it with running water
Make sure the wound is always clean and dry enough
If the blister is small enough, no need to bandage
