The Treating and Protection of Wounds
Injuries happen even to the best of us and one of the most common injuries is cutting one’s self. I’ve done it before. There have been times where I’ve cut my finger while catching a piece of paper flying out of my printer (don’t ask, but paper cuts can be fairly nasty). It’s just best to clean up those cuts, put a bandage on it. Change the bandage every day, give it some time to heal, clean it again, later, rinse, and repeat until done.
That being said, there are some pretty nasty things to get into cuts and they range from the painful but harmless to there might be problems.
Salt in a wound is one of the most painful things that you can receive. Needless to say, the phrase of pouring salt in a person’s wound, they weren’t whistling Dixie when they came up with that phrase.
Lemon juice is another one. Again the old adage of lemon juice in the wounds and believe me when I say that causes pain and utter misery.
Dirt is another one and while not painful it could cause nasty infections.
Onion drippings is another one. You think that onions make you cry. Well, get some if it in an open cut and you’ll really be crying.
Another person’s blood the reasons why should be obvious, given the types of blood transmuted diseases that a person could be a carrier for.
Just clean the wound, keep it covered, and you should be fine. You’ll be as good as new in a couple of days. If not, well I’d advise seeing a doctor.
