what is wound?

Before we learn about proper  wound care,, it is important to know the basics of wound to take better care and precautions for faster healing.

A wound is an injury to the skin due to a cut, scrapes and punctures or a heavy blow. Pathologically speaking, a wound is a sharp injury to the dermis layer of the skin. A wound is not only the injury suffered due to accidents inside or outside the home, it is also the surgical incisions and cuts made for catheters to go inside the body as in the case of a suprapubic catheter.

types of wound 

Wounds are essential of two kinds – open wounds and closed wounds. Open wounds and closed wounds can be further classified according to the object that caused the wound.


  • Incision – a sharp cut made by a sharp object like knife, razor or glass splinters.
  • Lacerations – a deep cut or tear of the skin or flesh resulting in a jagged and irregular wound.
  • Abrasions – superficial wound to the epidermis layer, caused by sliding fall.
  • Avulsions – full or partial amputation of a body part not through a surgical procedure, but has been pulled off forcibly, like explosions or violent accidents
  • Puncture – when an object punctures the skin like nails or splinters.
  • Penetration – a wound made by knife or any other object that goes through a body part.
  • Gunshot wounds – caused by bullets.


Closed wounds are as dangerous as open wounds. There are two types of closed wound namely;

  • Hematomas (Blood tumor) – It is caused by injury to a blood vessel, leading to blood collection under the skin.
  • Crush injury – It is caused by extreme force applied over a long period of time.

wound treatment:

Minor  open wound treatment  doesn’t require a doctor’s attention and can be treated easily at home like superficial cuts and scrapes. In this type of minor wound treatment, you need to wash and clean the wound and then apply sterile dressing or bandage to help it heal. Very minor kinds of wounds won’t even require any elaborate wound treatment or even bandaging, just clean the wound and keep it dry to let it heal.

However, you need to see a doctor if the wound is deeper than half inch, the bleeding does not stop even after the application of pressure, bleeding is caused by a serious accident. Such type of wound treatment involves various procedures from closing the open wound with skin glue, sutures and stitches to tetanus booster shots and pain medication to name a few.


Wound infection is caused due to the infestation of bacteria in the wound. Such infections require immediate medical attention. The wound infection treatment involves the following preventive measures;
