How to Heal a Wound Quickly
Wounds will heal faster when you attend to them right away and keep them moist. Moist wound conditions not only heal cuts fast but reduce the risk of scabbing and scarring too. The whole healing process is inspired by how well you care for your wound, which dressings you use and where on your body your wound is located.
Heal your wound quickly by following these four simple steps:
1. Clean your wound.
The faster you start treating your wound, the faster it will heal. As soon as you notice your wound, apply pressure with a clean cloth or non-stick dressing to stop any bleeding. Next, wash your hands and clean your wound with the a wound spray to remove dirt and debris that could lead to an infection. A wound spray acts fast and is pain free. Most are also colourless, odourless and won’t irritate sensitive skin.
2. Apply an adhesive bandage or dressing.
Cover your wound with a suitable dressing like a fabric bandage or sensitive bandage until the wound is completely healed. An adhesive bandage or dressing will help to cover your wound in its moist environment so new cells can grow and repair your skin. It also protects your wound from getting infected and scabbing. Scabbing delays healing and increases the likelihood of scarring. Change the plaster or dressing daily unless you’ve been recommended to do otherwise by your doctor.
3. Apply a Wound Healing Ointment.
A wound healing ointment is key to quick wound healing. It helps create a moist healing environment which has been clinically proven to aid and speed up the natural wound healing process. A healing ointment can be used at any stage of the healing process, creating a breathable film that protects the wound from external influences. Repeat regularly until the healing is completed.
4. Reapply fresh bandage or dressing.
Keep your wound covered until your wound is completely healed but make sure to change your wound dressing regularly. Usually, wound dressings and bandages should be changed daily for hygienic reasons.
