Hi doctor, I want to ask, my brother’s left wrist was exposed to glass, so there was a little scratch but it was quite large, when we checked the wound looked white. Doesn’t it affect the wrist veins? Then what is the white one? Then how to handle it? Can you just give the wound betadine? R nThank you doctor ..

Hi Sarjan,


In general, wounds are divided into several types:

Open wounds and closed wounds
Clean wounds and dirty wounds
Scratches, cuts, stab wounds, gunshot wounds, etc.

Treatment of open wounds of large size requires skilled medical personnel and sterile medical equipment to handle the wound appropriately.


We recommend that you take your younger sibling to the doctor for proper examination and treatment. Regarding the treatment given, the possibility can be in the form of wound cleaning (including cleaning the remaining broken glass that may be left inside), suturing the wound (depending on the size, depth and condition of the wound), and drugs to prevent infection in the wound. In addition, if the wound is very dirty and at risk for tetanus infection, the doctor may recommend an injection with an anti-tetanus serum.


The base of the white wound that you mentioned in the description is difficult to know without direct examination. The basis of the wound itself can be skin, muscle, bone, and so on. Meanwhile, if the wound is on the artery or artery, the blood will come out quite heavy and tend to be difficult to stop the bleeding.


It is advisable not to try to treat or clean the wound yourself without sterile equipment to prevent future complications.
