When you sustained a wound, keep it thoroughly clean to prevent germs from setting in. Dirt can infect the simplest wound or minor cut if not properly taken cared of.
- Wash wounds with soap and running water.
- It is best that you are being assisted if your wound is bleeding a lot; becomes red or swollen, or has pus (yellowish fluid) coming out of it; and gives pain.
- For accidental burn, pour cold water on the affected part, place it in cold water for at least five minutes.
- If you really hurt yourself badly, rush to the nearest health center or hospital to help you.
