Treatment Of Burns That Are Black And Runny?
Hello doctor. R nAlmost a week ago I was exposed to extremely hot incense ash. At that time I was unable to provide treatment because the situation was not possible. The next day the wound created blackened skin and fluid bubbles. I only applied Aloe Vera gel to the wound once. Then a few days ago without realizing it, the liquid bubble had burst (possibly taking a shower) and as a result my skin surface became curved inward and white. But until now I only gave aloe vera gel. Until now my wound has not dried. The question is whether there is a special remedy for the surface of the skin that is curved and so that the wound dries quickly? Then may I continue to close this wound? Because I often go outdoors, I’m afraid that the dust will get into a wound. R nThank you
Good evening, thanks for the question
The goal of burn treatment is for the wound to heal quickly and have minimal pain. If the liquid-filled bubble has ruptured and it is certain that there is no dead skin tissue left, the wound is cleaned sterically and then the wound is closed. This wound closure has several functions, namely:
1. Protect the wound from epithelial damage and minimize the emergence of bacterial or fungal colonies.
2. The wound must be completely closed to prevent excessive evaporation.
3. Cover the wound as much as possible in order to minimize the onset of pain.
In first-degree burns, they are minor injuries with little loss of skin defense barrier. This type of wound does not need to be covered, that is, enough by giving antibiotic ointment to overcome the infection and produce skin moisture.
Whereas in superficial second degree burns, wound care is needed every day. The wound is smeared with antibiotic ointment, then wrapped with a cotton bandage and again bandaged with elastic bandages. In deep second-degree and third-degree wounds, initial excision and skin grafting are necessary.
Keeping the wound clean and moist by covering the wound accompanied by a wound dressing with a topical medication regimen is expected to trigger an ideal environment for epithelial growth in a good wound healing process.
Consult with your doctor for proper treatment and treatment of wounds so that you can practice independently.
That's all, hope you can help
