Treat Wounds On The Hands And Knees With Gentamicin Ointment For The Eyes?
Can abrasions that are still wet open on the hands and knees after a motorcycle accident can be treated using an ointment called Cendo which is black?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
What do you mean by the black Cendo ointment is a gentamicin ointment for the eyes?
Basically the eye ointment is only intended for treatment in the eye only. Antibiotics for the eyes are only used to treat bacterial infections of the eye. If you have a wound on the skin, the ointment that you should use is an ointment for the skin. Antibiotic ointment for the skin will only be given if the wound looks infected or has a high risk of infection. Ointment for skin antibiotics is a hard drug so you should not use it without checking with a doctor first and you shouldn't also buy it without a prescription from a doctor.
To treat your own wounds, you can do the following:
Wash your wound thoroughly, do not let any dirt, soil, small gravel left in the wound. Wash using running water and rub gently with sterile gauze. Dry the wound with just aerated or soft spotted by using dry gauze. After the wound is dry you can apply antibiotic ointment to the skin (if it has been prescribed by your doctor) and cover the wound with a wound bandage or with sterile gauze. Clean your wounds daily and replace also a bandage / gauze wound every day Perform steps to clean the wound as in numbers 1-3 above. Clean the wound more often if the plaster / gauze covers the wound wet with water, sweat, pus, or blood You don't need to clean the wound with alcohol or other antiseptic liquid because it can actually cause healing of the wound is hampered Make sure you wash your hands thoroughly with soap to be thoroughly clean before and after you treat your wound. If you notice pus in the wound or your wound is getting worse (the area around the wound looks more swollen, red, feels hot, and feels very painful), do a doctor's examination immediately.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
