Wounds That Don’t Dry On The Buttocks?
I suffered a wet wound on the buttocks, issued a fishy-smelling liquid, the wound seemed like it was caused because I scratched that part because initially it was just blisters, and when walking it felt sore because it was rubbed, I guess then how was the treatment?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, wounds that do not dry out and release odorous fluid (can also be accompanied by discharge of pus, more pain in the wound, swelling and redness in the area around the wound) may indicate an infection in the wound. This often occurs in wounds if the wound is not treated properly (including frequent scratching and rubbing frequently).
The following are some things you can do:
Make sure you do NOT scratch the wound again. Use pants that are not too tight and are made of soft material so as not to rub a lot. Cover your wound with a bandage to reduce pants friction on the wound. Make sure your wound is always dry, change it every day or more often when wet plaster is exposed to water or wet due to liquid or pus coming out of the wound Before you close your wound again, make sure you dry your wound first (be aerated first before covering it with wound tape) Make sure you always wash your hands with soap before and after treating wounds No need to treat wounds using alcohol or antiseptic fluid because it can actually slow healing wounds. If after 3 days your wound does not seem to improve, you should consult your doctor for further evaluation and management.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
