Will The Skin Color Come Back After Getting Burnt?
My son had accidentally been hit by an iron, at first his wound was bubbly, broken, but due to rubbing and then opening his wound. From there began to be odd, I went to the doctor and it turned out to be an infection, my son’s wound dried up, but it looked white. Will the skin be as it was then, and the scars will disappear? Please if there are any recommendations … Thank you very much, please answer me.
Hello Mrs. Thina Swiftr, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com. Wounds like the one you said are categorized as burns, and if they are adjusted according to their degree, they are included in second degree, where the burns occur in the epidermis layer and part of the dermis layer where blisters, swelling, pain, redness appear. Understanding the white color of the skin in the burn area, we cannot understand for sure, whether it refers to the whiteness of the skin due to burns where the pigment is lost because of the burn, or the scar that is dry but covered with pus that has been it dries, so it needs cleaner handling and routine so that the scars won't be too obvious later.
To restore skin tone to normal conditions is a long process and requires extra patience. If you want this we strongly recommend consulting a dermatologist to prescribe drugs that can restore normal skin color, such as the use of topical steroids, and anti-aging. In second-degree burns, the scars will usually remain on the skin, but it also depends on the initial treatment when exposed to the wound. If the initial treatment is good, then the scars left behind will be very minimalist. And burns need time to recover in at least 2-3 weeks. Here we submit a few simple steps that can be taken to remove scars such as:
do the right treatment when first exposed to burns (first or second level) by:
wash the burn with clean running water for at least 20 minutes, then do the soaking with water that is cool for 5-10 minutes
apply atypotic antibiotics to open wounds to anticipate bacterial infections
give foods that are high in antioxidants like many vegetable and fruit foods every day,
natural treatments to reduce burn scars can use ingredients such as honey, sesame oil, aloe vera, lavender oil given when the burns occur in the early days.
Thus we can convey, hopefully our information can be useful for you. thanks.
