Welcome and thanks for posting your query to Healthcare Magic.
As per your query you had beeen prescribed Dermovate
and emulsifying ointment for patch on the head and the skin seems to have opened up and you need further suggestion.
First of all stop the cream as it is potent steroid
which can cause multiple skin problem including skin atrophy
. These kind of creams should never be applied beyond 2 weeks without dermatological consultation.
Now it is almost a Long time since your problem. Generally in any of the wounds we get healing at the maximum in 2-3 weeks. As it is more than 5 months since the problem so you should be bit more careful and vigilant regarding the problem.
For the betterment kindly follow the suggestions below:
-Do simple cold
compressions two times.
- stay away from heat and humidity.
- do not try to touch or scratch or pinch the area as can lead to secondary infection.
- Get yourself immunized by tetanus vaccine
if not done in last 5 years.
- You can apply topical antibiotic
cream such as "mupirocin" or fucidin
in thin layer two times a day.
You will get proper healing in next 10- 15 days by all these measures.
Get well soon.
Hope these information will help. If you have further queries I will be happy to help.
"With good health wishes"
