Purulent wounds and treatment of purulent wounds
With various injuries to the skin surface, purulent wounds can form. The cause of the inflammatory process and the appearance of pus are pathogenic bacteria that penetrate into open wounds and scratches.
The main signs in which it is necessary to urgently begin treatment of purulent wounds are a rise in body temperature, swelling around the damaged part of the body, painful feelings of a pulsating nature. Of course, you should first contact a specialist who will carefully examine the damaged area and prescribe the correct treatment of purulent wounds. In some cases, sufficient home care for the wound, in others an autopsy is required, which is carried out by a professional surgeon. In any case, you need control in order to avoid complications.
Direct treatment of purulent wounds depends on the stage of their healing. There are three main stages. At the first stage, the dead cells of the skin are absorbed and the hemorrhage is eliminated. At the second stage, granulations develop, which subsequently fill the tissue defect. The third stage is scar formation. But most often only two phases are distinguished: hydration and dehydration. As a rule, the first phase involves the elimination of swelling, swelling, purulent foci by opening the abscess. In the second phase, the process of recovery of skin cells and other tissues takes place. Of course, effective treatment of purulent wounds largely depends on the individual features of the structure of the human skin, as well as the state of the body and conditions in the purulent focus. It should be noted that significantly speeds up the healing and recovery process, good blood flow, the absence of foreign matter in the suppurative focus, dead cells of tissues and various microorganisms.
To determine how to treat purulent wounds, it is necessary to consider the factors of their effect on the body. For example, during the hydration phase, the main task is to suppress the activity of harmful microorganisms, which results in a faster healing of the purulent wound. First of all, provide the patient with peace of the damaged part of the body and enter an antiseptic drug. Next, you should strengthen the hyperemia with a salty dressing. This not only promotes healing, but also leads to the death of purulent microorganisms. In no case should you injure the wound walls, all actions should be as cautious as possible.
The second phase assumes a different focus of activities - strengthening the processes of recovery and regeneration of skin cells. At this stage, the wound is protected from penetration of various bacteria, the gradual maturation of granulations begins. Effective bandages with vaseline oil or fish oil help, since these drugs help fill the purulent wound and restore the epithelium. Also, a physician can prescribe physiotherapy and physiotherapy exercises, which helps to quickly regain strength and retain all the functions of the damaged part of the body.
Among the medicinal plants used in folk medicine, when purulent wounds appear, ayr, cranberries, aloe, horsetail, sweetbread, nettle, etc. are extracted. For example, purulent wounds are sprinkled with dried powder roots of ayr or nettle leaves, and aloe juice or cranberry oilAffected places or apply their flesh to the wound in the form of a compress.
As a preventive measure, it is advisable to observe all the rules of personal hygiene, especially when small cracks and wounds appear. It is also necessary to strengthen the immune system( to lead a healthy and active lifestyle, to eat fully, not to avoid physical exertion), so that when an infection gets infected the body struggles with pathogens.
