Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, how big and deep are the wounds you have experienced? What was the initial cause of the injury?
Wounds on the skin, including the skin behind the ear, can occur due to many causes, often related to mechanical injuries, such as scratching, scratching, banging tightly, to incisions that are dangerous. It could also be, wounds arising from insect bites, gaping skin infections, or various other causes. Depending on the size, cause, and treatment of the wound, this condition can be dangerous, but may not.
If the size of your wound is small and superficial, this wound should heal in a short time, which is less than 1-4 weeks along with skin regeneration. Wounds that are wider and deeper can certainly require a longer healing time. In addition to its size and depth, various other factors can also make wound healing last longer, for example:
Inadequate wound care
Infection of the wound
Poor nutritional intake
Blood clotting disorders
Other diseases, such as diabetes, HIV, connective tissue disorders, and so on
Unfortunately, very little information that you provide is related to the condition of the wound that you are experiencing. Therefore, it is difficult for us to assess the causes and the appropriate treatment to be carried out.
You should check your complaint directly to your doctor or dermatologist so that the best treatment is given, right? Later treatment can be given by the doctor for example by wound care, suturing, debridement, or administration of certain drugs. Some investigations, such as a laboratory, may also be recommended by your doctor.
Here are some good suggestions for you to do:
Always clean the wound regularly 2 times a day, for example by using a gauze cloth moistened with liquid NaCl
Keep the wound dry and clean
Bathing diligently, also wash your hair 1 to 2 times a day
Avoid touching excessive wounds with dirty hands
Avoid giving care to the wound without doctor's advice
Hope this helps ...
