Wounds Ill-smelling






Source: Papers On Health

For all such wounds, the best method is frequent
cleansing with vinegar or dilute ACETIC ACID (see) by means of a
small glass syringe, such as may be got at any druggist's (see
Abscess; Wounds, Syringing). We know one case where the patient was
expelled from a curative home because of the evil smell of his wounds,
three careful cleanings out with dilute acid so removed all odour that
the patient was at once readmitted. Where the wound is very tender,
soak soft cloths or lint in the dilute acid, and lay them on the wound
three or four ply thick. Remove and renew them every quarter-of-an-hour
till the smell is gone. Of course the cloths should be immediately
washed or, better, burned. In using the syringe, care should be taken
to suck out the ill matter, as well as to send the dilute acid well
down into the sore. Careful cleaning of the syringe with boiling
water before use is necessary.
