Understanding Abrasions

Abrasions are skin scratches, which may affect the epidermis, a portion of the underlying layers or all layers of the skin.

Abrasions are examined, rinsed and cleaned as well as the wounds described above. However, the anesthesia is more difficult, which is particularly problematic when large amounts of dirt, stones or glass are in the abrasion, which is often the case. A block anesthesia or intravenous sedation may be necessary.

There are other wound dressings that come into question, when it comes to protecting the wound from drying out, because it harms the re-epithelialization, and also to prevent sticking to the association with the wound. Close observation and supervision are required if the defects are large, to check for purulent discharge (signs of infection) or lack of wound healing.
