Why is it important to clean a wound?
A wound is identified as a break in the skin – the body’s protective layer against the environment. Keeping a wound clean is important because if you don’t, it can get infected and become a more serious concern than when it started. Not only should a wound be cleaned initially – especially if there are obvious signs of dirt or debris in the wound, or if it was a human/animal bit and there is a chance of foreign saliva being in there – but it should also be kept clean and protected from the elements. Use a bandage of some kind to protect it, and wash it out daily until it heals.
