Treatment Of Head Injuries Due To The Impact Of Hard Objects?
Hello good afternoon I want to ask, u0026nbsp; My head is injured due to collision with hard objects, if the medicine for wounds on the head so that it dries quickly, what should I use? Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should first explain how deep the wound you have is and whether the wound is dirty or not. If your wound is shallow and not too dirty, you can do your own wound care. If the wound is deep enough, continues to bleed, and the wound is very dirty, you should get more intensive examination and treatment at the doctor because the wound must be cleaned until it is completely clean to facilitate wound healing. If there is a small amount of dirt (soil or small gravel) on the wound, then it is likely that infection will occur in the wound and the wound will be more difficult to heal.
If your wound is shallow and clean enough, you can do the following things:
Wash your wound thoroughly using water running down. You can rub your wound gently so that all the dirt that is attached can be separated. Dry the wound with just aerating and then close the wound using sterile gauze or wound plaster. If the wound is very small, you do not need to close the wound. Clean your wound and replace gauze / plaster every day, or change more often if the gauze / plaster is wet with blood, sweat, or water. No need to clean or treat wounds with alcohol or povidon iodine because it can actually slow down wound healing. If you see signs of infection in the wound (wounds increase in pain, redness and swelling around the wound, visible pus in the wound or odorous discharge coming out of the wound), immediately consult your doctor for further treatment.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
