First, wash the wound with clean water by a rubber toy or water pistol to direct a jet of clean lukewarm water directly on the wound. Then, patting dry cotton cloth wound, apply antibiotic ointment and wrap the bandage (but not over-tighten).
How does it work?
Cleaning the wound and the surrounding areas, you will remove all dirt with it, which will speed up the healing process and prevent any infection.
When to call the doctor?
If you are unsure whether you have completely cleaned the wound, if the bleeding does not stop, if the wound is very deep or if you notice signs of infection (redness and pus).
