What To Do When The Eyelid Is Injured Due To Objects?
In the afternoon, I want to ask that my mother has just suffered an injury to the eyelid due to being hit by an iron object which is commonly called a hanger / clothes hanger. I want to ask what should be done to overcome this. Thank you for your help

Wounds on the eyelids due to hanger scratches are often not dangerous, especially if they are light and the hanger that scratches the eyelids is clean. Not infrequently, this hanger scratches cause the eyelids to become scarred, reddish, swollen, sore, and also bleeding. If the conditions that appear without light, you can help your mother overcome her complaints by the following steps:
Clean the wound on his eyelids using clean gauze moistened with intravenous fluids (NaCl), do not press or rub excessively
Do not apply too tight plaster, ointment, or any medication to the wound without consulting a doctor first
Do not handle wounds with dirty hands
Wash your face diligently, keeping the wound clean and dry
Do not use excessive cosmetics around the eyelids
However, if the wound looks severe enough, seems to continue to bleed, runny, or festering, and does not improve within 3 days after following the steps above, you should not consider it trivial. Check with your mother directly to the doctor or dermatologist so that the wound can be treated properly. It is feared, the wound in your mother's eyelids will not heal due to serious tissue damage, secondary infections, or bleeding disorders that need further treatment from a doctor.
Hope this helps ...
