Which Is Good To Clean The Back Wound Betadine Or Dettol Antisepticu
I thought my son had a mosquito bite but it seems to be getting worse. betadine, detol, bactroban, skin calm are not working. it's itchy and getting worse. Any advise?
Red lights: Depending on your son's age and environment, you are describing a lesion which could be many things. Eczema, scabies and other inflammatory conditions can usually only be ruled out by face to face inspection. I suggest a visit to your GP to have a good look at the lesions before using anything else on the skin. Meanwhile you could give your son an antihistamine for itch relief. All the best. ...Read more

Hello. After a pilonidal surgery they been cleaning my wound with betadine. Now i have been asked to clean it with water in the shower. Is it safe?

If wound opening narrows, seek the surgeon so to allow wound healing process taking place from its inside out until the space is completely filled with sterile granulation tissue.

Wash-off first, then: Like most other cause of contact-allergies, avoidance is best treatment. If +contact, best is to wash-off as well as you can with warm water and soap. Then depending how severe, topicals such as calamide/cortisone can be used if skin is intact/or only minor abrasion. Oral benadryl/zyrtec help with itching. If more severe, you may need eval and prescriptions from your doc. Good luck. ...Read more
I do all the time: This agent has a lot of dependible benefits.I do make an effort to remove all the residual betadine from the skin after the wound is cleaned or stitched.Leaving it on can be very drying and cause later skin sensitivity to the product. ...Read more
Safe: But depends on what it is being used for. Betadine used repeatedly on an open wound can dry and damage healing tissue, so should only be used on an open wound under medical direction, only if needed for cleaning infected tissue, should probably be diluted before use on an open wound, and use sparingly on an open wound. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

3 days ago I fall of the bike and i had a scratched skin. .but i cleaned it with dettol within an hour..Should i still take a tetanus shot????????????
Maybe: A person should get a Tdap booster shot if he hasn't gotten a Tdap shot in the last 10 years. The Tdap shot protects him from Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis (whooping cough). If a wound is deeper or contaminated with dirt, the doctor may give a tetanus booster if the patient hasn't had a tetanus booster in the last 5 years. ...Read more
