The correct care and treatment for a wound at the moment it occurs is crucial for proper wound healing. Use clean hands or gloves, apply pressure to the cut or scrape, clean the wound and pat it dry with a sterile gauze pad. Next, cover the wound completely with gauze or a non-stick pad. Use first aid medical tape to firmly secure the pad along all sides. Keeping the wound protected and covered is extremely important for adequate wound healing. An uncovered wound dries out, scabs, and presents a greater chance of scarring and of re-onjury.
