Treat Boils In The Legs That Have Broken?
Hi my name is adit at first I was sick at the foot already broken and kept dry when I already peeled out the water continuously and continued to enlarge the wound I have checked normal sugar then how do I dry it up yes. It’s been 2 months.
Good evening, thanks for the question
Boils are lumps that form on the surface of the skin that contains pus due to germ infection. Ulcers can arise due to hygiene, poor wound care resulting in infection, or poor immune status. Boils can appear in any part of the body. Boils can also occur in areas with hair such as armpits or pubic areas called folliculitis.
Staphylococcus is the most common causative organism. Ulcers are formed due to bacteria that enter through the hair follicle or through a previous wound on the skin.
Management of boils can be done at home by using warm compresses to reduce inflammatory reactions and pain. If the wound tends to be wet an open compress is applied with a 1 / 5,000 calicus (PK) permanganas or 7.5% iodine povidon dissolved 10 times.
If the skin disorder is not extensive the doctor can give topical antibiotic therapy (topical). However, if the boil enlarges and forms an abscess accompanied by complaints of fever, weakness, and muscle pain, it is advisable to do a small surgery to remove the contents of the abscess sterically by the doctor. It aims to limit germs to the end. To prevent this condition from recurring, one must pay attention to the following:
- Maintain personal and environmental hygiene and if you have open wounds
- Consumption of good nutrition to support the wound healing process
- Avoid using clothes or pants that are too tight or made of rough materials such as jeans
- Do not use lotions that can inhibit skin pores
- Do not use body care equipment interchangeably with others
Consult with a doctor if the wound does not heal to get adequate treatment.
So, hopefully it can be useful
