ouchy cuts & puncture wounds

Posted by Malou at 10/17/2008 10:25:00 AM
It's normal for everybody to have minor cuts. Treating them right is important to avoid infection. Clean the cut gently with soap and water. Apply an antibiotic ointment to prevent infection. This also keep the skin moist to speed healing and prevent scarring. Cover with a clean bandage and change it often, especially if it becomes wet or dirty. Head for the ER if a wound is deep, has glass, metal or dirt embedded in it; or doesn't stop bleeding after five minutes of applying direct pressure. Check wounds regularly for signs of infection. If you see pus or red streaks, see your doctor.
