HI NIMISHFG,
HI I AM DR.KAVITHA, I WOULD LIKE TO HELP YOU.ACCORDING TO YOUR DESCRIPTION YOU HAVE WHAT WE CALL A SECOND DEGREE BURN.
THESE TYPE OF BURNS HAVE A GOOD PROGNOSIS MEANS IT WILL HEAL WELL IF WELL LOOKED AFTER. IF YOU ARE A DIABETIC ,OR HAVE ANY OTHER CHRONIC DISEASES A PROPER COVERAGE WITH A BROAD SPECTRUM ANTIBIOTIC MAY BE REQUIRED OTHERWISE REGULAR DRESSING WITH STERILE GAUZE PADS IS SUFFICIENT TO HELP IT HEAL.YOU MAY USE A BETADINE SOLUTION TO CLEAN YOUR WOUND BEFORE DRESSING . DO NOT USE FLUFFY COTTON OR OTHER MATERIALS THAT MAY GET LINT INTO THE WOUND.WRAP IT LOOSELY SO AS NOT TO PUT PRESSURE ON THE HEALING WOUND. YOU CAN LEAVE THE WOUND OPEN AFTER IT STOPS OOZING .
YOU MAY ALSO NEED A TETANUS BOOSTER IF YOU HAVE NOT HAD WITHIN THE LAST 5 YEARS.
YOU MAY TAKE SOME PAINKILLERS TO MAKE THE PAIN TOLERABLE.TAKE PLENTY OF FLUIDS AND GOOD FOOD .AVOID USING FULL PANTS THAT MAY AGITATE THE WOUND AND PREVENT NEW SKIN FORMATION . AND PLEASE DO NOT USE ANY HOME REMEDIES THAT MAY INTRODUCE INFECTION INTO THE WOUNDS.
WATCH FOR ANY SIGNS FOR INFECTION LIKE FEVER,INCREASED PAIN,OOZING OR PUS FORMATION.
IF INTERESTED YOU MAY GO FOR COLLAGEN DRESSING UNDER A DOCTORS GUIDANCE BUT IT MAY NOT BE NEEDED IN YOUR CASE. TAKE CARE. BYE.
