What is the best treatment for a scraped knee/arm? I cant figure out if its better to keep a bandage on the wound or to let it get air to heal faster or better.
My son injured his knee this past Friday, 8/25, its a mixture of a scrape and getting rocks & pebbles embedded in his wound. I cleaned it up after he took a shower and put a bandage just so he wouldnt scrape it on his sheets while he slept. I put the bangage on loose so air could get to it. I looked at it Sunday morning and it looked so-so but when I looked at it before he went to bed it was really weepy. He said earlier in the evening it was like there were crystals on his knee. Im like thinking what the hell. I hope it doesnt mean he is developing an infection. He had 5 good size rocks and many pebbles embedded. Im pretty sure I got all the debris out.
Any suggestions on how to treat a wound like this? Thanks
