Treatment For Blisters On The Wrists?
Good afternoon, I have a question. The wrist of my ring finger was scratched with a bounding rope while on futsal so that I got a deep abrasion, now it is a bit painful and difficult to move so it is a bit hindering my activities. My handler for 2 days is only giving me betadine but until now it’s still not dry because it’s often exposed to water. What’s the solution? and how long will it take to recover? because about a week longer I want to go home using a bicycle so it’s a bit difficult to pair. Thanks.

Blisters that occur as a result of being scratched by a sharp object can take a long time to heal and vary depending on many factors, including:
Extent and depth of wound Wound care given History of illness, for example related to blood clotting disorders, immune system disorders, etc. If the wound is small and superficial, this condition is generally not dangerous. You can first do the following steps to solve it:
Clean the wound regularly 2 times a day using a clean gauze cloth moistened with intravenous fluids (NaCl). Press the wound to let the fluid and dead tissue out, but do not rub too much. No need to close the wound after cleaning. Bathing diligently 2 times a day, keep the wound dry. Avoid sprinkling anything into the wound if it is not recommended directly by the doctor. Limit activities that involve excessive ring finger movement. Avoid smoking. However, if the wound is still wet, bleeding, or is actually bleeding pus up to 3 days after the friction, you should see a doctor directly so that the wound condition can be evaluated immediately. Usually, in mild conditions, doctors only need to treat the wound and prescribe some medication to speed up healing and prevent infection. However, if the wound is wide and deep, the doctor can also suture it so that the healing can run more optimally.
