my child has an injury. At first the wound was small, then it spread to the side until it reached the lips. And it didn’t heal. I tried applying supertetra but it didn’t heal. I gave betadine and it didn’t heal. How is it?

Hello, Anggun Bonita, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.


Wounds on a child's face can be caused by:


1.    Bacterial infections such as impetigo


2.    Fungal infections such as tinea / candidiasis


3.  Viral infections such as herpes


4.    Open wound with skin infection

To find out the cause, you should consult a doctor. The doctor will see the form of skin disorders suffered by your child, then if necessary will carry out supporting examinations such as skin scraping tests. Treatment is very dependent on the cause. If the cause is due to bacteria, then antibiotics will be given, as well as for fungi, anti-fungal will be given, and the virus can be given anti-virus or not given therapy because viral infections often heal on their own (depending on the patient's immune system). It is better not to take the drugs you mention without a doctor's prescription, because these drugs include antibiotics/hard drugs that must be given under the supervision of a doctor.


To prevent worsening, you should keep the wound clean by compressing it with betadine, not scratching / holding it especially with unwashed hands, and increasing immunity by getting enough rest, eating and drinking regularly and nutritiously, and washing hands regularly. If symptoms worsen, see your doctor immediately.


That's it, I hope it's useful.

Regards,


dr. Sarah Rizqia
