Proper wound management

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.

  1. Wash wounds with soap and running water.
  2. 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.
  3. For accidental burn, pour cold water on the affected part, place it in cold water for at least five minutes.
  4. If you really hurt yourself badly, rush to the nearest health center or hospital to help you.
