Conventional wisdom versus modern scientific research
Conventional wisdom passed down over the years says that leaving a wound open is the best approach, as it allows the wound to ‘breathe’ and ‘heal naturally’. Modern scientific research, however, has proven that the opposite is true: proper wound care is essential.Broken skin represents an easy means for all kinds of dirt and bacteria to enter the body, which can soon result in infection. Microscopic bacteria are everywhere and are invisible to the naked eye. In severe cases, infections can spread to other parts of the body and cause serious health issues.
Infections are often painful, delay the healing progress, and become a source of annoyance and irritation. If an infection becomes serious, a course of antibiotics may even be required – so, if you think your wound is infected, you should seek medical attention.
