Prevention Is Key – Proper Wound Care Prevents Scars!
My go to for wound care is Colloidal Silver 500 ppm. Place it directly on the wound and surrounding area everywhere a Band-Aid will touch. Air dry. Apply a 3M waterproof bandage. The area is now secure under that bandage. It is waterproof so it can go surfing, in the shower or bathtub. It likes to stay on for at least five to 10 days. NOTE: these bandages are made to stay on! (I trust them because they are made by the same people who make post- it notes! These guys are geniuses!)
I do not even attempt to take them off unless the edges are frayed.
Also another product that I trust very much is grapefruit seed extract… It is antibiotic, antiviral and anti-fungal like Colloidal Silver 500 ppm.
Both of these products work well. I have found that colloidal silver allows the bandage to stick better because the grapefruit seed extract by nature has some oil in it. The waterproof 3M bandage comes in a lot of different varieties. My favorite is called Tegaderm because it is big and I can cut it to size. They also come in a box like regular Band-Aids in three different sizes (for your entertainment some of them even have pictures on them).
THE BOX MUST SAY 3M WATERPROOF TO KEEP WOUND SECURED.
Everyone is different some skin cannot take adhesive, in that situation, I would use no stick pads then use gauze to wrap around and secure the bandage on. Change 2x daily, using colloidal silver 500ppm each time.
ALL THE BEST! Remember proper wound care means less scars! Using these methods I have avoided scars 90% of the time!
DO SCARS EVER POSE A PROBLEM FOR THE FUTURE?
Yes, it is possible that they can become “active” again after months or years, and may need some additional attention. This is another reason why periodically getting your nutrition checked makes perfect sense. That way potential issues can be caught before the affect your health.
