[How long does the ointment stick?]_ Action_Usage
Both waist and leg pain and rheumatic diseases can be treated with plaster, because applying plaster on the painful area can effectively clear away heat and relieve pain. Most plasters have analgesics, and the plaster is directly applied to the skin to treat the disease.It is also very obvious, but the efficacy of the plaster is relatively fast, so you need to replace it with a new one after a certain period of time. How long is the plaster suitable?
Waist and leg pain, many people will choose plaster to help, but if stuck too long, it may cause problems.
In fact, the active ingredients in the plaster penetrate the skin to the subcutaneous tissue through the skin, and they act locally and even affect the whole body.
However, the content of the drug on the plaster is limited. Some Yunnan Bai ointments and other external pain-relieving plasters have absorbed the active ingredients of the plaster after 12 hours, and they have no effect even after being exposed.
When peeling off the plaster and changing dressing, pay attention to cleaning the affected area, keeping the skin clean, letting the skin “breathe” properly, take a rest, and then apply a patch.
Do not stick plaster to prevent plaster replacement. This will hinder ventilation of the affected area, but will easily cause discomfort.
At the same time, it is also necessary to observe whether the skin in contact with the plaster is red or itchy, and to find out in time whether the plaster is allergic. If allergies occur, stop applying immediately and seek medical treatment if serious.
If the plaster is applied for several days, or if it is not cleaned between the two patches, it may cause allergic reactions or even contact dermatitis, with erythema of the same shape and clear border as the plaster, accompanied by itching, and severe blisters may also occur.
At this time, the plaster must be exposed immediately. Wash the part with mild symptoms to reduce skin contact and friction. Do not apply any plaster before healing.
Symptoms are severe. Some blistering or even ulceration must be treated at the hospital.
In addition, you can’t just stare at the pain points when applying the plaster.
For example, due to cervical spondylosis, some people may experience lengthy, sore fractures.
At this time, if it is only applied to the covering, bones and other parts, it cannot solve the root cause of the disease. The correct method should find the tender point on the cervical spine.
In addition to pinpointing the pain point, the “contralateral pain point” should also be selected according to the condition when applying the plaster.
For example, in patients with knee joint pain, if it is only muscle pain caused by trauma, applying plaster to the painful area can solve the problem; if it is a complications within the joint, the joint muscles will form a protective contraction.
In this case, the plaster should be applied before and after the joint, and pinching on both sides can make the rapid recovery disappear, not just the pain points. The place where the plaster is applied is best rotated.
