Treatment For Itching And Runny Back Scars.?
I want to ask, a few months ago I had an accident, and there were a few wounds, but after a few weeks the wound healed, but the scar is now back itchy and runny, why is that? Can the cause be from the soap that I use when bathing, because when I take a bath and it is exposed to soap, my wound is itchy? And when it comes to food problems that cause allergies, I always take care of them and don’t eat them. What do you think the handlers are like? Do you have to give betadin again?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Has your wound completely healed before or is there still a scab on the scar?
If there is still a scab on the scar, then actually the skin under the scab has not actually healed. In this phase, the scar is often itchy. When scratched or scratched until the scab comes loose, the wound can open again. If your wound is open again, then treat your wound as before. It is better to avoid using alcohol or povidon iodine to treat wounds because both of them can actually slow down wound healing. You can wash the wound with clean water and dry it well afterwards (you can dry the wound with gauze or just aerate it, do not rub it roughly). If the wound is in the leg area, you should cover the wound with plaster when you leave the house.
If the wound has completely healed and there is no longer a scab, then the possible cause of the itching is excessive friction on the wound (for example, often rubbed against pants or socks when the wound is in the leg). Sores can also itch when irritated or are allergic to certain ingredients (for example you use soap that irritates the skin, scars can also itch again). In this case, you should try to reduce the friction on the scar. Use soft clothing, or put a band-aid or gauze over the scar. It's best to avoid using antiseptic soap or other skin care products that can irritate the skin (also avoid the use of lotions that contain fragrance). Keep the skin moist around the scars, give a skin moisturizer that does not contain fragrance after you shower.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
