Hi doctor,

I am a pharmacist. I am having a deep wound in my foot. Currently, I am taking Taxim-O CV 325, Lyser D and Vitamin A to Z. I am dressing the wound with Betadine and T-Bact ointment. What else should I do?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You did not mention that how you acquired that wound. Continue the medications.
  • First of all, I will suggest you to take a proper diet as nutrition is very important in rapid wound healing.
  • Take more proteins in your diet like pulses and dairy products and avoid fatty diet.
  • Give proper rest to your foot. Do not let it get infected.
  • Check your glucose and hemoglobin levels.
  • I hope you have taken tetanus injection (Tetanus toxoid vaccine) if you acquired the wound after trauma.

Hi doctor,

I got the wound in a road accident.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Since it is a traumatic wound you only have to take care that it does not get infected.
  • Take a healthy diet. A balanced diet will give you building blocks your body needs to heal a wound.
  • As mentioned earlier do not forget to take Tetanus toxoid injection.
  • If there are any signs of infection such as increased pain, temperature or foul smell or fluid coming from the wound, immediately contact a physician.
