    How can a cut on the feet be treated?

Posted on Mon, 10 Jul 2017 in Internal Doctor Category
Question: My son got a cut below in feet when he stepped on a sharp kitchen vessel. The bleeding stopped when I applied turmeric on the cut. For speedy healing, should I apply any ointment?

Brief Answer:
Ointment Neosporin

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

As the bleeding has stopped, there is no need to worry. If the cut is deep it may require stitches. If not a simple band aid for 1 to 2 days will help in speedy healing. Ointment Neosporin can be applied 2 to 3 times a days.

I would be able to help you better if you can attach a picture of the injury.

Looking forward for your reply.

I hope this answered your query.
