Yellow Liquid On Abrasions?
Good night,. I want to ask.
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition that you experience with the discharge of yellow fluid which then hardens can occur because of an infection in your wound, and the yellow liquid is actually pus. This can be triggered by a lack of keeping the wound clean, leaving it damp or wet, or because of a low immune system.
In responding to this, if the fluid does not continue to come out, there is no swelling, no blood, pain or other symptoms that interfere, actually it is not a problem to be left because the pus will then become sores that will later peel off by itself. Noteworthy usually itchiness will feel itchy and we will be tempted to peel it, which habit can open the wound again and cause further infections.
But if the fluid continues to come out, or there are other accompanying symptoms, immediately consult a doctor to do a history and further examination of your condition. Meanwhile, keep the wound dry, stop using gentamicin because it is an antibiotic, a hard drug and should not be used without doctor's advice, minimize friction on the wound area using loose pants, and multiply the consumption of high-protein foods such as eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt, chicken breast and seafood. So, hopefully answering your question.
