How To Stop A Weeping Wound
Natural Process: When there is injury to our skin, inflammation occurs which means the area becomes red, warm, tender and with swelling. The swelling occurs under the skin layers and then can leak out of an open wound. The fluid contains water, protein, electrolytes and cells that give it color. This is a natural process and aids in healing. As it heals, the drainage will decrease. Keep it covered. ...Read more
Talk to your surgeon: There are many reasons for a surgical wound to continue to weep or drain fluid. First- is the wound closed completely (primarily) or was it intentionally left open?

Is it infected?: Without physically examining your insect bite, there is only a medical guess as to what is triggering the weeping. Is it infected? This would be the 1st concern--addressing the infection is the only solution here. If the weeping is watery clear, then perhaps this is more of an allergic-type reaction that might respond to oral antihistamines such as allegra (fexofenadine). Call md if infected or not better soon. ...Read more
Unclear: It's pretty hard to stop the scarring process unless you die or use some unusual drugs which interfere with the complex body response to wound healing. If you were able to do the latter, well then, the healing is incomplete. Under six weeks the scar is not very strong; less than two and it could open. If you're talking about gel sheets, they don't affect strength, just the top thickness of scar. ...Read more

It also has to do with where the injury occurs, how deep the injury is, etc. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Clip nails!: The fingernails should definitely by clipped and/ or filed making picking a little more difficult. You may need to cover his hands with gloves or socks so he cannot access his bites. I would also recommend a topical anti-infective, like neosporin, that will protect the bites from infection and may help the healing process. Preventing the bites with off or avon skin-so-soft is also recommended. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
