Infectious and Wound

 

Any wounds and injuries on the skin will provide the way to the germs and bacteria. Infection can also affect the skin, deeper tissues, or the surrounding organs of the wound. Recognizing the symptoms of wound infections helps to quickly and effectively treat the wound. Some signs and symptoms of wound infections include:
- Fever
- worsening wound condition
- Poor secretion
- the pain
- Redness and inflammation of the skin around the wound
- Feeling hot and heat around the wound

 

 
Wound infections delay the wound healing process. Any factor that weakens the immune system and the body's defense can increase the risk of wound infections. Factors such as:
- Increase the age
- Smoking or obesity
- Certain special medical conditions that weaken the immune system, such as AIDS or cancer
- taking steroid medications
- Radiation therapy or chemotherapy
- Contact infected wounds
- Reducing blood flow to the wound
To diagnose wound infections, the clinician first examines the symptoms and clinical condition and examines how the wound develops and how long it develops. For definitive diagnosis, blood tests, x-rays, CT scans to examine deep tissue, as well as scarring, will also be performed.
The treatment of wound infection is based on the severity of the wound, the location of the wound, and the involvement of the surrounding areas of the wound. In the treatment process, the health of the individual and the duration of the wound are also important. Drug use helps treat infections and reduce pain and inflammation. The use of proper dressing also prevents more infections or attacks and contacts of infected objects with ulcers. In some cases, it is necessary to remove external objects by wound surgery, or dead or infected tissues removed from the wound.

 
Precautions

 

- Always keep the wounds clean and dry. Change the dressing regularly.
Eat healthy and nutritious foods such as fruits and vegetables. Do not forget the vitamins and minerals.
- If you have diabetes or high blood pressure, be sure to have your disease monitored.
- Limit as much as possible cigarettes and alcoholic beverages.
