Preparations for the seams
Normal wound healing after suture will be possible only if it will be sterile. Moreover, these joints must be imposed so that to exclude the possible formation of a cavity between the edges of the wound. Uninfected seams are processed daily, but not earlier than one day after their imposition. To handle use different antiseptics: iodine, brilliant green, solution of potassium permanganate, alcohol, "Yodopiron", "Fukortsin", liquid Castellani. Lingering wounds treated with ointment containing panthenol. Promote healing chamomile ointment, ointment with milk Thistle. To prevent the formation of keloid scars you can apply the ointment "Contractubex" or silicone adhesive.
How to treat stitches on the wounds
When processing is not recommended to use wool, as its particles can stay in the wound and cause its inflammation. It is better to use gauze. The seams are treated once a day for five to six days. The dressing should be changed daily until the time of withdrawal of the thread. In clinics and hospitals ligation are performed in designated areas (dressing rooms). Daily dressing procedures promote faster healing of wounds, because the air contributes to the drying of the seam.
After suture should carefully monitor the condition of the wound. To disturbing signals, applies a wet bandage with blood, pus, the appearance around the seam lumps, swelling, redness. Discharge from the wound suggests that it has got a infection that can spread. Infected, purulent joints cannot be treated independently. In these cases, you need to urgently see a doctor.
Sutures are usually removed in 7-14 days, depending on the location of the wound. The procedure is painless and requires no anesthesia. Before removing the seam undergoing treatment, after removing the threads of the seam bandage is not closed. After removal of the suture thread needs to handle a few more days. Water treatments can take two to three days. While washing should not RUB the seam with a sponge, not to hurt the scar. After a shower to wet the seam with a bandage and treat with hydrogen peroxide, then it is necessary to apply the green paint. After two or three weeks after removal of the thread can be applied phonophoresis with a special absorbing solution. In this case, the sutures heal faster, and scars are hardly visible.
