Wound treatment

External wounds are skin injuries in which the skin is torn or cut or punctured. As the skin of the wounded area tears or opens, the internal part of the body is prone to microbial infection, which is medically called septic infection. When bacteria infect a wound, it could cause life threatening consequences. Hence, it is extremely important to heal wounds. Our body has a natural blood clotting mechanism that heals wounds. However, there are several remedies to enhance the pace of blood clotting and prevent septic infections. Some effective wound remedies are as follows.

One of the most useful and effective remedies to speed up the healing of wounds is the usage of honey. The application of honey on wounds serves two purposes. First, it acts as a barrier between your body and environment, preventing it from germs and dirt. Second, it helps reduce pain on account of its anti-inflammatory properties.

Use of diluted vinegar is another one of the more popular wound remedies. Vinegar is a natural astringent, and so, its application cleanses the wound and helps prevent wound infections. You should dilute 1 part of vinegar in 3 parts of water, and gently pat the wound with it.

Aloe vera gel is known for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties; in fact, it is one of the most popular wound remedies. Apply aloe vera gel over your wound to hasten healing. If you have a wound on your leg or your hands, you can use the juice of marigold leaves for topical application. It is also known to help with healing.

There are many oils that are good and could be used as wound remedies. One good healing agent is calendula oil because of its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties; simply apply it on the wounded area. Calendula oil promotes cell regeneration and quickens the process of blood clotting and healing. You can also use tea tree oil or lavender oil to heal wounds. Tea tree essential oil is a potent antiseptic and antimicrobial agent, and thus, it helps to prevent wound infection. Also, you can prepare a mixture of tea tree, calendula, and comfrey oils to heal wounds quickly.

Certain wounds do not undergo orderly stages of wound healing; wounds that do not heal in 3 months are called chronic wounds. Healing chronic wounds involves medical treatment; home remedies generally do not work for such wounds. To heal such a wound infection, antibiotics could also be used. For medical treatment and antibiotics for treating wounds, it is best to consult your doctor.
