Brief Answer: GO TO ER. DETAILS ARE GIVEN BELOW. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. I have reviewed your attached image and injury over the forearm.

Kindly, consult with your local healthcare provider or go to ER at the earliest for proper treatment. Hope, it helps for your information. Let me know, if you need any clarification.

Brief Answer: STITCH IS REQUIRED. FOLLOW THE GUIDELINE. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for follow up query. You need small stitch after antiseptic dressing as the wound is already 2 days old. Then, one bandage is required after applying Povidone-Iodine ointment. It helps to heal the wound properly and protect from secondary infection. You can remove the bandage after 5 to 7 days and do dressing at home regularly with above ointment till new skin is appeared on that area. Kindly, consult with local doctor (ER) or healthcare provider and take proper treatment to avoid infection. Hope, I have guided you properly. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query. All the best. Good luck. Regards, Dr Soumen
