If the band-aid is wetted with water or sweat, it must be replaced in time to avoid the damp wound and lead to bacterial growth; if there are fever, redness, exudation, pain and swelling after the use of the band-aid, it should be stopped in time.
Band-Aid is a regular item in many families, once there is a small wound will be bandaged with Band-Aid hemostasis. But band - aid isn't easy. Previously, media reported that a girl in Suzhou because of improper use of band-aid, resulting in wound infection caused amputation. To this, beijing children's hospital Shunyi women's and children's hospital general surgery deputy chief physician Gao Zhixue reminds that band-aid is only suitable for the wound relatively flat shallow, the wound neat clean, the bleeding is not much and does not need the suture small wound.
“People should be aware of the right ways to use band-aids, especially parents." Gao Zhixue said that the correct use of the wound surface should be first disinfection, if there are unclean, the wound needs to be cleaned first; after opening the band-aid, to avoid contamination of yarn cloth, yarn cloth cover the wound, appropriate space, after the wound on both sides of the pressure but not too tight.
Gao Zhixue stressed that band-aid should not be used for too long, at least one change a day. If the band-aid is wetted with water or sweat, it must be replaced in time to avoid the damp wound and lead to bacterial growth; if there are fever, redness, exudation, pain and swelling after the use of the band-aid, it should be stopped in time. \"You can use liquid band-aid, good hemostatic effect, but also breathable, waterproof, promote wound healing. Gao Zhixue's advice.
The wound is deeper. If you are stabbed by some rusty iron products or stabbed by a knife tip, the correct way is to stop bleeding first, then sterilize the wound and get a tetanus vaccine in the hospital in time.
The wound is bigger. Band-Aid gauze cannot completely cover the wound, the tape on the wound is not good. It is easy to tear open the wound when changing, will increase the wound area, the wound under the tape is more susceptible to infection, allergies.
Glue allergy. If the patient is allergic to band-aid tape, the use of band-aid may cause skin itching and redness and even produce small blisters, which can easily cause infection.
Wound contamination. Such patients had better go to the hospital for thorough debridement or removal of foreign bodies, and then bandage treatment, if there is infection, not to use band-aid.
Burn, burn. The use of a Band-Aid at this point can cause an infection in the wound. If accidentally scalded, it is recommended to cool down with cold water first, then apply scalded ointment, if more serious, should go to the hospital for treatment.
Animal damage. After being bitten and scratched by an animal, attach a band-aid, which will cause the bacteria to spread in the wound, causing infection. This condition should first wash the wound with soapy water and then go to the hospital for a rabies vaccine.
Skin boils. Band-aid is not conducive to the drainage and absorption of pus in furuncle, but is easy for bacteria to grow and reproduce. Early use of warm water rinse or 70% alcohol smear disinfection, systemic symptoms need to be treated in hospital.
People with diabetes. This kind of people stick to band-aid, will have local temperature rise, plus impermeable, more easy to multiply bacteria, will lead to wound infection aggravated, wound is not easy to heal.
