9. Myth 09- Wounds itch when healing
We all know the feeling: some time after an injury, the affected area will begin to tingle and itch.
This goes especially for superficial wounds.
And yes – in fact, this itching may indicate that the healing process is well on its way.
But do watch out! Should your wound be very red, suppurate, or the itching turn into a throbbing sensation, you should definitely
consult a doctor because these could be signs of an infection that should be treated medically as soon as possible
10. Myth 10- Small wounds need not be treated
Playing down a small wound? Unfortunately, many of us make that mistake. Though it should be clear to anybody
that for a bacterium, even the smallest pinprick offers a huge entry hole into our body. Therefore: Always treat any wound with
appropriate wound care, no matter how small it may be. This helps to prevent infection and will ensure optimal healing.
