I am a 23-year-old male with a weight of 77 kilograms and a height of five feet nine inches. I went to a hospital in early hours. I have some cuts in my arm and they put steri-strips and a dressing over it. The dressing remains loose and I can see my wounds covered with dark red scabs as well as a small bubble of amber-colored liquid remained in place for a day. Is this normal? Can I remove my dressing for having a shower? Can it ruin my steri-strips? Do I need to add another dressing?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I understand your concern. You can change your dressing by yourself at home by taking someone's help. You can apply Povidone-iodine cream and cotton and then wrap it with a bandage. Avoid placing the wound in water and do not keep it open. A small bleb in a wound is a part of normal process of healing. It will be better if you share pictures of the affected wound and so I can guide you further. Put any bandage in a sterile manner.
