Skin is the largest organ of the human body. It consists of two primary layers – the epidermis and the dermis.
Abrasion is when the surface layers of the skin (epidermis) are broken. Sensitive zones (like knees, lower legs and elbows) are more inclined to scraped spots than thicker, more cushioned regions. The scratched skin of a scraped spot can contain particles of dirt or other contaminates that can cause infection.
If the abrasion is bleeding heavily or extremely painful, come see us at Summit Urgent Care and we’ll help clean and bandage your wound properly. In the case of a life-threatening emergency please visit the Emergency Room or call 9-1-1.
Treatment for cuts and scraped areas
- Some injuries are too extensive for the body to seal without help. Your provider will choose whether or not an injury requires stitches, staples or skin glue (dermabond).
- Come see us immediately if the site begins to deliver discharge, swell or radiate an unpleasant smell.
