Treatment Of Festering Wounds In Diabetics?
Hello sis, permission to ask, Sir, I have wet diabetes, 4 days after the surgery, but there is still pus that comes out, is there any medicine that can absorb pus? The problem is the assistant doctor who operates my father routinely checks every day my father’s wound, and that just cleaned and patched to absorb pus, then he said to try to put a little pressure on my father’s feet so that the pus came out, please find a solution
Does this meant festering wound on the leg area? Indeed, most diabetes wounds are experienced in the area of the foot so that the term 'diabetes feet' appears. But this kind of injury could arise in other areas. To be information actually diabetes is not divided into wet or dry. The possibility of the term 'wet' arises because of festering wounds in diabetes.
Diabetes is divided into type 1, type 2, and diabetes in pregnancy. Type 1 is generally due to genetic disorders that cause the pancreas to produce little or no insulin. Type 2 is generally diabetes that occurs in adulthood, occurs due to inadequate diet and lifestyle, combined with gene abnormalities. Type 2 suffered the most. In type 2 diabetes insulin production decreases or tissue sensitivity to insulin decreases.
Complaints of injuries in diabetes are very stubborn. This is because in diabetes with high blood sugar levels and difficult to control, the blood supply to the tissue that is injured will decrease, innervation deteriorates, and the immune system decreases so that it is easily infected by infection. Small and simple wounds that have diabetes can become extensive and festering wounds, and accompanied by tissue damage. Wound healing is far longer than ordinary wounds. Wound healing depends on blood sugar control, the patient's general condition, and wound management. Patients should always wear footwear, don't smoke, get enough rest, control nutrition intake, and make sure the wound is always clean. Routine control to the doctor and check blood sugar.
Hope this answer helps yes. Regards.
