Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
Postoperative wound care is one of the important processes in the healing process. There are several factors that affect the speed of wound healing, namely the type and size of the wound, nutrition or nutrition consumed, the presence of infections that inhibit healing, wound care, the presence of certain diseases such as keloids, blood clotting abnormalities, and others.
Although generally post-operative wounds should be cleaned (dressing bandages, sewing thread removal, etc.) every 3 days or so, there is no specific standard for this because each wound condition requires different treatments. In surgical wounds that are festering, bleeding, or secreting bodily fluids (serum), sometimes the bandage must be replaced more often so that the wound remains clean and dry to prevent further infection. But on the other hand, the replacement of the dressing and washing the wound should also not be done too often so that the wound healing process is not interrupted.
Therefore, in the case of postoperative wounds festering, I advise you to keep control of your wounds at the nearest health facility or if necessary to the surgeon who handles your surgery, so that in addition to the wound care you can also gradually evaluate your wound healing process. , and if necessary additional antibiotic drugs in the form of ointments or oral drugs (drink).
Thus, hopefully can help.
