Treatment For Treating Cuts On Fences?
, if the wound is exposed to the fence, can we handle it like this or not? Wound cleaned using sterile gauze u0026amp; Rivanol. Then the wound was given Betadine, then affixed with sterile Lomatuell H (10 x 10 cm, 4 x 4 in) adjusted to the size of the wound approximately 1 cm in length. Then wrapped with sterile gauze u0026amp; white plaster. Can you handle it like that or not?
Thank you for the question.
The cut can vary in handling, depending on the size, depth, cleanliness, and also your general health condition. As a preliminary treatment, minor cuts can be handled first by:
Clean the wound with sterile gauze moistened with liquid NaCl (intravenous fluids) or povidone iodine (such as betadine) Remove dirt and dead cells that stick to the wound surface, but do not rub excessively. If there is an active source of bleeding, press so quickly stop If the wound is large, cover the wound with moist gauze (sterile gauze moistened with liquid NaCl and then squeezed), take the upper side with a dry gauze, then glue it with a plaster (not too tight). . However, in sensitive people, contact between injured skin and rivanol can trigger irritation which makes the wound feel sore, red, swollen, and even blisters making it more difficult to handle later.
Therefore, after undergoing wound cleansing as you have lived above, you should still consult your doctor or surgeon so that you can further evaluate the condition of the wound. In some cases, a cut from a fence can also cause a risk of tetanus, so an anti-tetanus injection may be needed.
Hope this helps ...
