Learn answers to commonly asked questions about wound care cleansers below.

Why is proper wound care important?
Proper and safe cleaning of the wound bed – removing contaminants, debris and exudate – is critical to preventing infection, reducing scarring and promoting healing.

How do I clean a minor cut, scrape or wound?
According to the Cleveland Clinic1, you should immediately wash a fresh wound with lots and lots of warm, soapy water. You may even want to stand in the shower or have the tap running so you can flush the wound with water.

Alternatively, the Mayo Clinic2 recommends using only water to flush the wound and limiting soap to the area around the wound. A pair of tweezers cleaned with rubbing alcohol can be used to gently remove any dirt or debris in the wound. If you can’t get everything out, you should see a doctor.

If the wound is very deep and bleeds significantly, you should go to the Emergency Room. If the wound is from an animal or human bite, or from a dirty or rusty object, you should immediately go to an urgent care center.

You should always contact your doctor right away if your minor wound doesn’t seem to be healing or if you notice an increase in pain, redness, discharge or get a fever.

What do doctors and medics clean wounds with?
Saline
Most healthcare professionals start with a saline wash or a hospital-grade wound cleanser which is non-cytotoxic (won’t damage healthy cells or impede healing). Which they chose to use depends on the type of wound and how serious it is. Cleansers used when the wound is fresh may be different than the ones they use for daily care while the wound is healing.

Surfactants
In addition, there is another class of hospital-quality cleansers. These cleansers contain a gentle surfactant which allows for fast, thorough cleansing of wounds at all stages of the healing process. Surfactant-based solutions like Medline Skintegrity penetrate the wound bed, helping to clean narrow crevices and pockets that can normally harbor microbes and debris.

How long does it take for a wound to heal?
Johns Hopkins Medicine3 explains that a wound needs to go through 4 steps: 1) Stopping the bleeding 2) Inflammation 3) Growth and Rebuilding and 4) Strengthening.

While, in many cases, a wound is almost as strong in its repair at the 3 month post-injury mark, the entire healing process can take several years to complete.4 If a wound does not heal well, it is called a chronic wound and it will need continued care from a doctor or healthcare provider in addition to specialized medical products.
