A wound is a type of injury which happens relatively quickly in which skin is torn, cut, or punctured (an open wound), or where blunt force trauma causes a contusion (a closed wound). In pathology, it specifically refers to a sharp injury which damages the dermis of the skin.
Wounds are often left unattended, in-part due to poor habitual practice which starts from childhood.
When we get older our own immune system at times can get weak due to lack of sleep, poor lifestyle and noncommunicable diseases such as diabetes and cholesterol.
This puts stress on our body resulting in infections.
It is important to take care of our wounds which are relatively easy and simple in today’s modern society.
Wounds can be classified:
- Clean wound
- Contaminated wound
- Infected wound
- Colonized wound
Wounds are managed more than treated. This is due to the requirement of our own bodies requirement to heal the wound.
Management of wounds depends on the type, size/depth, cause and whether other structures beyond the dermis (skin) are involved. Treatment of lacerations/cuts involves examining, cleaning and closing the wound.
Minor wounds, like bruises, will heal on their own with skin discoloration usually disappearing 1-2 weeks. Abrasions are which are intact but usually involve a high degree of inflammation, they usually require no treatment except keeping the wound clean and using an anti-inflammation agent such as Spray8 to reduce pain and itching. Puncture wounds may be prone to infection depending on the depth of penetration. The entry of puncture wound is left open to allow for bacteria or debris to be removed from inside.
