Had abcess on skin. Drained. Put ribbon gasa and medisport tape. Antiseptic solution to clean the wound?
Hi Doctor : I would like to get your advice or a second opinion in my case: I have an absess on my skin and the doctor opened it to drain it because it was not getting yellow, they put me a ribbon gasa in the opening and more gasa on top , then some medisport tape to keep it on its place. Now they asked my husband to change it every other day until they come back , but we were told not to use any antiseptic to clean the wound .The doctor is on vacations and I will see him in one week but I'm concearned if we are doing the right thing. I never had that before. How long does it takes to heal? I hope this site is for real because it's hard to find answers from doctors , but I thank you in advance for your time and for beeing there for us . God Bless you.
