Proper wound cleaning is so important for many reasons, such as reducing the risk of infection. In addition, the correct handling of wounds can also help promote healing.


Wound assessment

The severity must be determined before proper cleaning measures can be taken. It is important to clean up immediately after trauma, especially when there is dust. Otherwise, the remaining fibers and other substances in the wound will cause the wound to heal delayed.


Cleaning solution

Choose salt water, drinking water or disinfectant to prevent the growth of microorganisms during the healing process based on the evaluation results. As an alternative, you can wash the wound with soap and water, and then blot it dry with sterile gauze. In the process of cleaning the wound, make sure to clean the surrounding area, because nearby bacteria may transfer to the wound and cause infection.

This prevents dirt and bacteria from entering or accidental scratching. In addition, covering the wound is also important to promote wound healing and prevent the formation of permanent scars from scabs.
