What not to do*

*when treating an acute wound

1

Do not touch your wounds

Never touch wounds without washing and drying your hands thoroughly. Unwashed hands may carry germs and dirt that could potentially cause an infection. Wear disposable gloves for safety if you have them.

2

Do not clean a wound with saline solution

Acute wounds only need to be cleaned when the wound is open and contaminated with dirt. If the wound is open clean with cool tap water. Refrain from using ice cold water.

3

Do not soak the wound in detergent

Detergent will negatively affect the wound healing process. It may increase the risk of infection and slow down healing.

4

Do not bandage a surgically closed wound

Cover the wound only if it is leaking fluids, if it needs protection from abrasive clothing, or if you do not want to see the wound. Changing bandages that adhere to the wound may be painful.

5

Do not use expensive dressings if non-adherent gauze is sufficient

A non-adherent gauze dressing (ProcovaPT) is sufficient for many wounds, including post-operative incisions, lacerations, skin tears or bites. Absorbent dressings (HoneyMesh) may be used if the wound is draining fluid.
