What Is Wound healing

A kind of injury that is caused by various factors like an accident, surgery and certain diseases is called a wound. The skin may get punctured, cut, or torn to form a wound.

Wounds are classified into five categories, which depend upon their causes.

  • Abrasion: When skin is scraped or rubbed against a hard or rough surface, Abrasion is caused. An example of an abrasion is a road rash. Not much of bleeding is there in abrasion, but one must get the wound scrubbed, and cleaned, to abstain from any infection.
  • Incision: Incision is caused by a pointed or sharp object, like a razor blade, broken piece of glass, and knife. Incision causes a lot of bleeding. An incision, which is deep can cause damage to muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
  • Laceration: A deep and rooted tear, or cut in the skin is called laceration. Accidental cuts with machines, tools, or knife may cause a laceration. In this, wound bleed extensively, and rapidly.
  • Puncture: A small hole may be caused by a pointed, long object, like an ice pick, needles, or nail is called puncture. Even a bullet shot can result in a puncture wound. This wound is enough deep to impair the body’s internal organs, though may not bleed that much. A Puncture wound may need an immediate expert vigilance. In some cases, even tetanus is required to prevent the infection.
  • Avulsion: An Avulsion is an extreme form of a wound. In this, the skin may tear away completely, or partially.  This wound may occur at the time of a vicious accident like a gunshot, explosion, or body-crushing accidents. These wounds may bleed rapidly, and heavily.

What Is Acne

  • Acne, known as Acne Vulgaris, is one of the commonest dermatological complaints.
  • Acne is especially prevalent during puberty and young adulthood, although some people may still suffer from it into their middle years. Acne is known in the general population as "pimples."
  • Acne occurs when skin pores are blocked by excess sebum (natural oil produced by the skin) and by dead skin cells. As the sebum builds up, it causes inflammation of the surrounding skin. The lump that forms under the skin because of this blockage is called a comedo. A group of lumps is called comedones.
  • If not treated properly acne can lead to permanent scarring. Acne also has important psychological implications such as low self-esteem, anxiety, and depression, especially in youths.    

What Is Eczema

Eczema also called atopic dermatitis, is a set of skin conditions that cause the skin inflammation and irritation.

It commonly appears on face, wrists, hands, knees or feet. It may also affect other areas.

Eczema is not contagious; hence there is no risk of it getting spread from one person to another.

What Is Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a long-lasting autoimmune disease. In psoriasis, skin cells multiply 10 times faster than their normal. The volume of underlying cells, which reach the surface of the skin and die, causes red and raised plaques. These are covered with white scales. Psoriasis usually occurs on elbows, knees, and scalp, though it may also occur on palms, soles of feet or torso.

There are mainly five types of psoriasis: plaque, inverse, guttate, pustular, and erythrodermic.

What Is Vaginal yeast infections

Also called as ‘Candidal Vulvovaginitis’, vaginal yeast infection is a condition where the concentration of yeast in vagina increases and that of Lactobacillus bacteria decreases. Generally, overgrowth of Candida fungus due to the decrease in Lactobacillus bacteria leads to this condition.  

What Is Bacterial Infections

  • Bacteria are the single celled, microscopic organisms which are essential for many processes of human body and a few of them are responsible for causing harm. A bacterial infection refers to the condition when there is accumulation of harmful bacteria inside or on the human body.

  • Acne is classified as either inflammatory or non-inflammatory acne.
  • Comedones are non-inflammatory acne. They can either be closed (whiteheads) or open (blackheads). The color of a blackhead is not debris or an indication of bad skin hygiene, but melanin (the skin’s surface pigment).
  • Inflammatory acne occurs when bacteria invade the skin, causing papules or pustules (pimples). Nodules and cysts are also inflammatory lesions. Nodules are deeper skin lesions, while cysts are fluid-filled lumps. 
  • Acne usually presents in common areas of increased oil production such as the forehead, nose, chin, chest and upper back.
  • Acne can be classified as mild, moderate or severe, depending on the amount and type of lesions.

Causes of diseases where FOURDERM CREAM 5 GM is used

What Are The Causes Of Wound healing

Wounds are generally caused by injuries or accidents, however, the other reasons that may cause wounds are:

  • Surgery.
  • Burns due to heat, and chemical.
  • Extreme temperatures like frostbite.
  • Certain kind of radiations.
  • Some of the health conditions that can be the cause of chronic wounds are as follows:
  • Anaemia.
  • Sickle Cell Anaemia.
  • Chronic Osteomyelitis.
  • Diabetes.
  • Heart Disease.
  • High Cholesterol.
  • Hypertension.
  • Kidney Failure.

What Are The Causes Of Acne

  • Causes of acne are multifactorial. There are many myths surrounding causes and home remedies.
  • Genetics play the largest role (estimated in 80%) of acne cases.
  • Hormones, especially increased testosterone during puberty, play the second biggest role. Androgens increase the production of sebum by the skin’s oil glands as well as an increased production of cells found in the skin’s epidermis (top layer).
  • Hormonal changes during normal menstrual cycles, as well as pregnancy also play a role in women.
  • The bacteria, Propionibacterium Acnes, which is usually found on the skin, is another important role player. The areas of inflamed skin surrounding comedones make it easier for bacteria to accumulate and grow.
  • Although there are many myths surrounding diet in acne, there are few scientific conclusions around its actual role. Carbohydrates and milk products have shown some suggested links, but none are definitive.
  • Facial hygiene is important, but plays a small role, especially in severe acne.    

What Are The Causes Of Eczema

Exact causes of eczema are still unknown, but it is often triggered by an overactive response by body’s immune system to an irritant. People who have the family history of certain allergies or asthma are more at risk of developing eczema.

Certain foods like nuts or dairy products can also trigger eczema. Environmental factors or pollens also trigger eczema in some patients.

What Are The Causes Of Psoriasis

  • Weak immunity, in which white blood cells start attacking skin cells mistakenly.
  • Genetic.

What Are The Causes Of Vaginal yeast infections

  • Impaired immune system.
  • Higher oestrogen levels caused by hormone therapy or birth control pills.
  • Pregnancy
  • Excess use of antibiotics.
  • Uncontrolled diabetes.
  • Poor eating habits.

What Are The Causes Of Bacterial Infections

Best Foods With FOURDERM CREAM 5 GM

What Are The Best Foods For Wound healing

To help heal the wound, certain foods can aid in speeding up the clotting process. These are as follows:

  • Tomatoes: Tomato comprises of an antioxidant called lycopene, which is rare in most of the good foods. Lycopene prevents the oxidation in one’s body. Oxidation may increase the risk of the damage in the cells. Lycopene is also beneficial in boosting the immune system of the body. Thus lycopene has a great potential of diminishing the wound infection’s risk.
  • Broccoli: Broccoli is a phytonutrient rich vegetable. It is antioxidants that may help to reduce the inflammation in the body, along with boosting the immune system. Broccoli is rich in vitamin C, which is a mandatory component of wound healing.
  • Black beans: Black beans is one of the superfoods. It is high in protein content. Consuming a ½ cup of black beans can provide 8 grams of the protein. Saturated fats and sodium contents are less in it. To enhance the process of wound healing, the most required nutrient is protein. Hence, protein deficiency may slow down the process of healing.
  • Soy: Soy is a vegetarian super food. Soybean consists of a wide variety of vitamins, which may boost the immune system. Hence, the immune system helps in the fast recovery of the wound.
  • Chocolate: Chocolate helps to control the blood pressure, which is a primary factor for the ability of the body to deliver nutrients, vitamins, and oxygen to the bed of the wound. Dark chocolate has a lot of antioxidants, which boost up the body’s immune system. The strong immune system helps to fight the infections.
  • Lean ProteinCollagen is one of the proteins that are present in one’s body in ample amount. Collagen is an essential protein, which has a property to knit the tissues back together. Normal protein intake should be 0.8 grams per kg weight. But, to cure a wound one may need a much higher quantity of the protein.  One must aim to take 1.5 to 2.0 grams of the protein per kilogram. Examples of lean protein are legumes, fish, turkey, beans, and eggs.
  • Fermented Dairy:   For healing a wound, patients are normally prescribed with antibiotics. These antibiotics work to kill the infection causing bacteria along with the bacteria that are good for the digestive tracts and help to digest the food and produce vitamins. These bacteria may also play an important role in boosting the immune system of one’s body. So, to produce the good bacteria one must consume fermented dairy products like yoghurt and kefir. Kefir may contribute 8-12 species of good bacteria just by a small serving, while yoghurt contributes fewer species of the good bacteria, and has lower bacterial-count. 
  • Vitamin C rich foods: Vitamin C rich food like bell pepper is an exceptionally healthy food for healing wounds. It helps to cross link the collagen, which is required in a healing process. Especially if one suffers from an incision, then bell-peppers should be consumed. Some other foods that provide Vitamin C are citrus fruits, broccoli, kiwi fruit, kale, and guava.
  • Zinc rich foods: Zinc helps in boosting the immune system of the body, it also activates and develops body immunity cells. Hence, it plays a vital role in the healing of the wounds. Zinc also helps in cell growth and protein synthesis that is a must for the healing of a wound. Some of the zinc rich foods that one must consume, when trying to heal wounds are seeds, nuts, oyster, liver, lamb, and beef.
  • Papaya and pineapple: These two fruits consist of protease enzyme, which helps to body in breaking and digesting protein. These enzymes may help to lessen down the inflammation and swelling. Hence, these fruits are really beneficial for the healing process of the wound.
