In explaining wound treatment and causes, we should note that the skin is the most extensive organ in the body, covering all body parts and serving as the first layer of defence against foreign organisms. This role played by the skin in ensuring immunity is very important as the skin can become infected once it becomes broken by injury.
All types of injuries that break through the skin layer is commonly referred to as a wound. Wounds can occur in different sizes and in various areas of the body which will determine its severity. Since the skin is always the first to come in contact with foreign microorganisms including airborne bacteria, wounds can easily become infected as these organisms penetrate the outer layer of the skin (dermis) into the inner layer (epidermis), where they can then access the subcutaneous layer and get into the blood vessels.
Wound infections can begin at the epidermal layer of the skin where they cause lesions and an anti-immune response. If the wound covers a wide skin area that makes clotting difficult, a build-up of bacteria and white blood cells can lead to the production of pus and as the skin is continually being exposed, this will result in further infection.
When left untreated, infected wounds can lead to serious health problems that will touch the affected area of the body. Wounds can become infected to an extent that amputations may become necessary.
Bacteria colony from the surrounding environment, especially strains of Staphylococcus aureus are the most common causes of wound infections. These foreign bacteria break down the layers of barrier and cause the naturally occurring bacteria in the skin to also become virulent to further worsen the infection.
Wounds can cause serious pains, discomfort, and irritation, especially in cases of non-healing wounds where the sore remains open for an extended period. People at risk of developing infected wounds include those with diabetes, obesity, weakened immune system, malnourished and poor hygiene habits.
Depending on whether a wound is systemic; that is affecting a large area, or localized; where it is restricted to a smaller area of the body, wound treatment methods can include the following:
Antibiotics: For wound treatment, certain antibiotics may be prescribed to suppress the effects of bacterial infections. These may be either administered orally for systemic wounds or topically on the affected area in localized wounds.
Proper diet: Eating a balanced diet can enhance wound treatment as it provides the needed nourishment for boosting the immune system and ensuring that wounds get healed quickly. Food rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals is highly recommended for people susceptible to non-healing wounds.
Herbal remedy: Herb has been effective for wound healing treatment. Humans have long used the healing powers of herbs to treat wounds, this natural remedy is still very effective in helping to heal infected wounds. The use of naturally sourced extracts such as honey and aloe vera which contains strong antibacterial and restorative properties, will clear up infections and also remove scars by restoring the natural tone of the skin.Healing Wounds from our Past and Closing Circles
