Confinement after childbirth is broadly practised primarily in Asian nations. Moms keep indoors for a hard and fast period of time in order that they will have a full restoration.
Those that have gone for a Caesarean part want some time longer to get better, however generally there are unproven cures prescribed to them to assist speed up the restoration course of. Nevertheless, not all of those cures work. Some may trigger extra injury like what Doctor Muhammad Izzat has shared on Facebook.
One of his patients was having some pain on her c-section wound, and it turned yellow and brown. He asked her,
“Did you put anything on the wound?”
She explained to him that she put turmeric and manjakani, a species of oak, after someone recommended them to her. However, the wound became worse and the pain unbearable. It was so painful that she stopped Doctor Izzat from examining it. He told her,
“Your wound is severely infected. There is a lot of pus coming out of it.”
According to Doctor Izzat, six in 100 women who opt for c-sections would get their wound infected. It’s relatively common, and mothers would be informed of the risk before they go for the surgery.
If the wound is severely infected, the mother would have to be warded and given venous antibiotics and regular wound cleanings. After the infection is gone, the wound would be stitched up again.
Doctor Izzat ended his post with a reminder not to simply apply remedies on the c-section wound. The best way is to clean it with water and dry it up properly.
