Hello Achmad, thank you for your question
Before discussing the steps for treating wounds, it is necessary to first know the type of wound you are experiencing. Every wound that occurs must be accompanied by an inflammatory reaction in the skin, which is characterized by pain, swelling, the skin looks red and feels a bit hot, causing disturbances in activities. Here are some types of injuries that often occur after motor vehicle accidents:
abrasion wound (excoriation) - due to skin rubbing against a rough and hard surface, only on the top layer of the skin, generally rarely causes bleeding, but still needs to be cleaned so as not to become infected with a tear (laceration) - the wound is deep enough with irregular wound borders, hits all layers of the skin, even to the subcutaneous fat layer, are often accompanied by bleeding so that apart from cleaning the avulsion wound, suturing should be done - in a serious accident, part or all of the skin and surrounding tissue is torn, handling with cleaning the wound and suturing it to ensure the type of wound and handling appropriate, you should have the wound checked by the nearest doctor. Should not take prescription drugs (such as antibiotics and anti-inflammatory) without a doctor's advice. If you feel pain, you are allowed to take over-the-counter pain medications, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen.
