Wounds are nasty little things. They can be as small as a few centimeters long, but they’ll sting much. They can be big wounds that look as nasty as they are. But never panic. You can do some first aid Wound Care. Here’s what you should do:
First, clean the wound by washing it with clean, running water and soap. Of course, make sure your hands are clean before doing this. This is to ensure that the wound will not get infected.
Second, stop the bleeding by putting clean gauze, bandage, or cloth over the wound. If you have antibacterial ointment cream, it would best be applied before this second step.
Third, keep the wound clean and the dressing fresh. Always clean your wounds twice to three times a day. Then use new dressings to cover the wound again.
Fourth, if the wound is severe, fatal, or beyond simple cuts and abrasion, go to a medical professional, like someone trained in skilled nursing. Their opinion will give you definite direction on how to treat and care for the severe wound.
