Introduction to painful wounds
Wounds cause pain for a number of reasons, especially, when a wound is infected and swollen, in which case the pain will usually intensify.
The wound has a lot of open tissue, which is usually very tender and painful.
If the dressing that is applied to the wound to keep it away from infection is sticking to the wound, it needs to be changed.
People who have diabetes can experience more painful wounds, and the nerve damage can cause additional pain in the legs and feet.
Sometimes a wound can make a person walk with poor balance and develop painful sprains and aches in the bones and joints. Treatments
Treatments that are used for wounds can also reduce the pain that a person is experiencing. When a person has had surgery of some sort in which a wound needed to be created in order to enter the body and operate, they can take antibiotics for the pain and to combat any kinds of potential infections.
It is important to use moist dressings so that they do not stick to the wound and cause further pain or irritation.
It is also a good idea to pour some sterile saline on the dressing and to let it soak for a while before removing it from the wound in order to make sure that there will be no sticking effects.
Once the wound gets smaller, this means that there will be less exposed tissue, which in turn will decrease the amount of pain being caused by the wound.
There are also various kinds of medications that can be used to decrease the pain.
It is important to use medication only when necessary and only when pain is worsening or intolerable.
It is also important to take the medication as soon as the pain begins in order to make sure that the effects are as fast as possible and that the pain will go away promptly.
Tylenol is a good medication for pain and it does not cause any problems to the stomach or the kidneys.
Ibuprofen is also an excellent pain relieved and it will also decrease the amount of inflammation.
However, it is important to remember that this kind of medication can potentially cause problems to the stomach and kidney, therefore, people who already have problems with these organs need to avoid this type of medication.
Ibuprofen can also increase blood pressure and make a person more likely to bleed.
Such medication should also be avoided by women who are pregnant.
