What sort of problem is an abrasion?

What sort of problem is an abrasion?

Let me explain: In dermatology, an abrasion is a wound caused by superficial damage to the skin, no deeper than the epidermis. It is less severe than a laceration, and bleeding, if present, is minimal. Mild abrasions, also known as grazes or scrapes, do not scar or bleed, but deep abrasions may lead to the formation of scar tissue. A more traumatic abrasion that removes all layers of skin is called an avulsion. ...Read more

Hi,
This Ramakrishna I have back and neck  pain  since 2years reason for disc abrasion problem. Please give me a some help  how to cure this?

Exercise is best: Unfortunately painful discs in the neck and low back can be difficult to manage. The only intervention that has been shown to help long term is a regular exercise regimen focusing on stretching and strengthening the back (core muscles), neck and shoulder stabilizers. Nicotine should also be avoided. Massage, chiropractic or traction treatments can help flares as can steroid injections. ...Read more

I had reoccurring cornea abrasions every 2 months until putting in a tear duct plug with no problems for 4 months now. How long can I keep it in?

I had reoccurring cornea abrasions every 2 months until putting in a tear duct plug with no problems for 4 months now. How long can I keep it in?

Until it falls out: The advantage of plugs is that they are easy to insert and can be removed if needed. They help maintain what tears you make but do not add any extra. The disadvantage is that they can fall out spontaneously. But it seems that as long as yours are in place, you will have the benefit. ...Read more

Do eye abrasions heal 100%. Or will I have problems in the future? Chance of infection or it gettin worse. Doc said small abrasion. Spark flew in eye

Quick to heal: Eye (corneal) abrasions heal quickly, usually in less than 24 hours unless there is some particulate matter left over from the source of the abrasion. The infection chance is extremely low. In your case a spark, which was probably sterile, caused the abrasion. The only long term problem is if the abrasion was in the very center, and if the deeper layers were involved then vision might be change. ...Read more

Perhaps: Corneal abrasion at the time of cataract surgery can happen, but it is very rare. Certain conditions can increase the incidence (dry eyes, blepharitis, even previous lasik). The retinal swelling also is somewhat rare to the level you are describing, but it too still happens. Conditions like diabetes, uveitis history, and pre-existing wrinkling of the retina (epiretinal membrane) increase risk. ...Read more
