The docs told you to clean it with alcohol??!  :cookoo:


Number one thing I learned from a plastic surgeon...NEVER PUT ANYTHING ON A CUT/WOUND YOU WOULDN"T PUT IN YOUR EYE Alcohol and peroxide while good to push dirt out at first, dry out the wounds too much. Its more likely to scar that way.


Cleaning it i'd use an unperfumed antibacterial soap and water and thats all..then plenty of anti-bacterial ointment and keep it wrapped up....but thats just IMHO as a former EMT and med student..I'm not a doc..

Three years ago, after some major surgery, wifey suggested/insisted/required that I rub vitamin E oil on my suture/staples. Subsequent follow-up doctor's visits brought forth his declaring that not only is the incision healing nicely, but also quicker than he's used to seeing. So........use a vitamin E oil salve to help the healing. I typically applied it after washing. Hope you heal fast.
It's not how fast you go, rather "how" you go fast!

But scars are cool, and they impress chicks. You can even make up great stories about how you got them. Slice your hand open with an Xacto knife while building a model airplane? nope. Knife fight in Tiajuana against a ninja, or a pirate. Yeah pirates are cooler. Although motorcycle accident is a pretty respectable scar story. As long as it was while you were running from pirates.

Don't the antibacterial soaps just get rid of the good bacteria and not the bad bacteria?

Theres no such thing as good bacteria in a cut...antibacterial soaps are ok becaues the water washes away all surface bacterial. Antibacterial waterless hand cleaner is bad because it kills 99.99% of bacteria, allowing that resistant .01% to grow and become evil and take ever..so eventually it can actually cause infections

The motorcycle is no longer the hobby, the skill has become the hobby.

Power does not compare to skill.  What good is power without the skill to use it?

Dude.. I agree with everything you said.. except that Ninjas are WAY cooler than pirates. Yes. That is all.

Oh yeah.. Pastrami hit herself in the leg with a weedwhacker... what a great mental image! Lucky she didn't sever her foot from her twiggy little leg...  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

This is long but HOPEFULLY it helps... My mom is a nurse practitioner..  I found this on the internet and she said it's correct..   Hope you're a reader...    :laugh: AND BY THE WAY!! Scares are cool  ;)

Conventional treatment of abrasions and road rash included treating the area by cleaning the wound with mild soap and water or a mild antiseptic wash (hydrogen peroxide), and then covering the area with an antibiotic ointment and a dry dressing. New evidence shows that this treatment approach actually may cause tissue damage and increase healing time. It has also been shown that the use of antiseptics, such as hydrogen peroxide "can actually cause harm to the tissue and interfer with function, which can further increase the injury and lengthen the healing process. Topical antimicrobials have been shown to be detrimental to fibroblasts and other cells needed for wound restoration." While a severe abrasion should be seen and abraded (cleaned) by a physician, there are some things you can do to help the healing process on your own. The recommended method of treating abrasions and road rash injuries includes the follows steps. First, because abrasions can easily become infected, you should clean the area thoroughly and remove any dirt and debris. Ideally, you want to irrigate the area with nontoxic surfactant (0.9% sodium chloride or Shur-Clens) under some pressure (use a syringe if possible). The area must be completely clean. If necessary, use a clean gauze to gently scrub the area. Do not scrub vigorously, as this can cause more tissue damage.

Use a semi-permeable dressing (Tegaderm, Bioclusive or Second Skin, for instance) to cover the wound and attach the dressing to dry healthy skin with adhesive tape. The dressing should be changed every few days. Keep the wound moist until it has healed. A moist environment will promote healing through improved cell migration and gaseous exchange, ease of removal of excess exudate, protection from bacteria and other contaminants.

A Word About Deep Lacerations

While cleaning the skin abrasion you should look for any deep cuts that may require stitches to heal properly. Cuts that continue to bleed after 15 minutes of direct pressure, or cuts that extend deep into the skin and have edges that pull apart, may require stitches. If you are unsure of the need for stitches, you should see a physician immediately.

Healing

With an abrasion the layers of skin removed will heal from the deeper layers to the surface layers, and from the outer edges to the center. As healing begins the area of the abrasion may look pink and raw. Over time, the wound will form new skin that is pink and smooth.

God gave us alcohol because sometimes we're stupid... and then we need it.  Before you clean the skin, drink about twice what you usually imbibe (also useful in physical therapy).  Ethanol has an exceptionally long track-record as a safe painkiller.

I keep Liquid Skin on the bike, because it really stinks trying to ride while bleeding into your gloves(*).  BTW, 3M makes some nice transparent bandage dressings, that let you look at the skin while it heals... cheaper than a slasher movie, and twice as cool!  (oh, wait... I just checked 3M's price list, and their !@#$ bandage costs more than a movie).

(*)I am a convert to Liquid Skin from kayaking.  If you cut your hand while camping, and you're a couple hours paddle from shore, you really don't have a choice.  Clean it with soap, get the bleeding to stop, then cover with liquid skin, and get home.
You cannot escape our master plan!

I have Liquid Skin as well.  The pitchers I used to catch for used it all the time for their blisters instead of band-aids.
