Basic Steps for Wound Care

  1. Wash your hands to avoid infection. 

  2. Stop the bleeding by applying gentle pressure with a bandage or cloth. Elevating the wound can also help stop the bleeding.

  3. Clean the wound with running water. Wash the wound lightly with soap and water, but not directly in the injury. Remove dirt and debris with a tweezer cleaned with alcohol. If you can’t remove all debris, see a doctor to avoid infection. 

  4. Apply a thin layer of antibiotics to help prevent scarring. 

  5. Cover the wound with a bandage or gauze. This will help keep the wound clean. 

  6. Change the dressing at least once a day or if the bandaging becomes wet or dirty. 

  7. Watch for signs of infection. Contact your doctor if there are signs of redness, increased pain, drainage, or swelling.
