How can I get treatment for bleeding piles

Cuts, abrasions and burns - first aid for wound care

A cut while cooking, a grazed elbow after a fall or a small burn while grilling - the right first aid is particularly important so that these and other small injuries can heal quickly and well in everyday life. Here you can find out how it's done:

Treating small wounds properly in everyday life

Who does not know that? A small cut on the thumb, a scratch while working in the garden or a mishap while doing sports that ends with a grazed elbow or an open knee. Even a stove or grill can quickly reward careless movement with a burn. Such small, superficial cuts, abrasions and burns are sometimes simply unavoidable.

Such injuries are usually not too tragic - and serious consequences, such as inflammation of the injured area, can be prevented with the right treatment. A general tip in advance: Even if it is only a question of small, superficial everyday wounds, there is always the risk of contracting tetanus pathogens, as these can lurk practically anywhere. You should therefore check at regular intervals whether your vaccination against tetanus bacteria is still active or whether it should be refreshed.

In addition to vaccination protection, first aid tailored to the type of injury is particularly important for small wounds in everyday life.

That is why antiseptics for disinfecting wounds belong in every medicine cabinet. Before going on holiday, not only do a comprehensive vaccination check, but also a well-stocked first-aid kit make sense. With non-alcoholic antiseptics like the Betaisodona® With ointment or solution, you are well prepared for small, superficial injuries, even from a distance.

How to treat cuts

Small cuts are one of the everyday injuries that everyone knows from chopping vegetables or peeling potatoes. Don't pay attention for a moment with the knife in hand and it happened. Such smaller cuts are characterized by smooth, slightly gaping edges, which usually heal well after a short time without any visible scars.

After a small cut in the finger or hand, it is best to let the wound bleed briefly. In this way, dirt and many germs can be washed out. Then stop the bleeding by pressing the wound with a sterile compress for a few minutes. If the bleeding subsides, it is advisable to disinfect the area to avoid infections caused by bacteria or viruses that are still present.

Antiseptics such as Betaisodona are suitable for this®. Wear betaisodona® Simply apply ointment or solution on and around the wound. The active ingredient povidone iodine fights 99.9% of the relevant germs * that could be present in the injured area. In addition, the well-tolerated active complex does not burn on the skin and is therefore also very suitable for children - in contrast to preparations with alcohol. The wound is then covered with a plaster to protect it from intruders. Deep, longer or heavily bleeding cuts should always be treated by a doctor.

Clean and treat abrasions

The frayed edge of the wound is characteristic of abrasions. They usually arise after a fall and typically on the elbows or knees. Abrasions can be really painful as the top layer of skin is worn away, exposing the nerve endings of the layers of skin below. But the typical, strong burning sensation often feels worse than the wound actually is: Usually only the upper layers of the skin are affected, which usually heal completely without scars.

However, abrasions can be heavily soiled by small stones or the like, e.g. if you fall from a bicycle. That is why it is important not to lose any time. First, carefully wash the affected area with cold, clean water. If there are small stones or the like in the wound, carefully remove them with sterile tweezers. After the wound is clean, an antiseptic for wound disinfection ensures that germs that have penetrated are killed. Betaisodona is suitable here® Ointment is particularly good because it can be applied very precisely to places such as the elbow. Abrasions, like cuts, can also have different depths. While a superficial injury will bleed little or no bleeding, a deep abrasion can become inflamed and even fester if left untreated

Therefore, you should immediately consult a doctor in the case of large and deep wounds.

Cool and treat burn wounds

Reaching on the hot plate or carelessly grilling are common causes of small burns. Such minor burns are usually easy to treat yourself. In the case of a minor burn or a 1st degree burn, only the upper layer of the skin is affected. The burned area usually turns red, swells and, most of all, hurts.

 

What to do in the event of severe burns

Burns can be really dangerous. How severe a burn is depends on the size and depth of the wound: A 2nd degree burn affects not only the upper layers of the skin, but also the layers below. In addition to redness and swelling, burn blisters appear on the affected area. Often such burns leave scars. The severity of a burn is not easy to estimate and should always be treated by a doctor in case of doubt. If not only the skin but also nails, glands and muscles are affected by a burn, it is a 3rd degree burn. The affected skin area can turn white or black, is hardened and insensitive to pain, as blood vessels and nerve cells are destroyed. In the event of such severe burns, call an ambulance immediately. Even if you are unsure about the severity of the burn, do not hesitate to consult a doctor if in doubt.

In the case of minor burns, it is important to cool the wound as quickly as possible, preferably with cold, clear water. Cooling gels, lotions or moist compresses are also suitable. The cooling soothes the pain and prevents the heat from spreading further into the skin. We do not recommend ice or ice water: the pain seems to be less at first, but the skin is supplied with more blood through the ice, so that the pain increases again. If the cooling is too strong, there is also a risk of cold damage - the skin can become hard and numb. After the water treatment, the wound should be disinfected and covered with sterile drapes. It is particularly important to disinfect with burn wounds: a possible immune response to potential pathogens usually no longer occurs in burned tissue. Antiseptics without alcohol are particularly suitable for disinfecting light burns so as not to further irritate the skin. Betaisodona's special povidone-iodine complex® Ointment or solution fights 99.9% of the relevant germs * and has a fast and long-lasting effect without burning the skin.

*The active principle of povidone-iodine, the active ingredient of Betaisodona, establishes a comprehensive effectiveness against a broad spectrum of human pathogenic microorganisms. In vitro, povidone-iodine reduces selected pathogens (including Staphylococcus aureus, MRSA, Streptococcus pyogenes, Candida albicans, Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa) by more than 99.9% within 30 seconds. Bacterial spores and some virus species are generally only inactivated to a sufficient extent after a long exposure time. Povidone iodine can react with protein and various other organic substances, such as blood and pus components, which can impair its effectiveness.
