Treatment Of Festering Wounds?
My father’s leg was swollen due to the arrival of a 19 liter gallon of water, then left. After a few days later, the ankles experience swelling and a few days later discharge and pus. After examining my father, I experienced a history of high blood pressure and high gout. After checking and cleansing the wound and taking a prescription from the doctor appropriately, that night the pain was painful. But sore because of his skin, his skin color is red and does not feel itchy just sore. What actions must be taken to recover quickly and disappear pus?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Was there a blood sugar check on your father when he was examined by a doctor and was an x-ray taken as well? At this time the medicine given by the doctor has run out and the wound in your father's leg has not healed and is still festering?
If the current drug is not yet used up, you should try to spend the drug from the doctor first, and see again whether the wound is improving or not. While taking medicine, you can do the following things to treat your father's wound:
Clean the wound with saline every day, rub gently with gauze to remove pus and dead tissue over the wound
Dry the wound with just aerated
Rub the wound with an antibiotic ointment (if prescribed by the doctor), then cover the wound using sterile gauze
Change the bandage every day, or if it is wet with water or pus, replace it immediately
Make sure you wash your hands thoroughly with soap before and after treating the wound
If indeed the drug has run out but the condition of your father's feet has not improved, then you should do the control to the doctor again. We recommend that you do a blood sugar and x-ray examination of the foot as well to see if there are complications that prevent the healing of wounds (for example there is diabetes or broken bones when crushed by gallons). Because your father also has high blood pressure and gout, you should do a doctor's examination in internal medicine in order to do more intensive examination and treatment of wounds and also administering drugs for high blood pressure and gout.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
