My last posting was too wordy I am sure so I will try again. My mother=in-law sustained a superficial injury to her forearm right under the elbow about the size of a quarter3 days ago. It is healing. The care I have given is to clean it with normal saline and apply neosporin extra strength , apply a nonstick gauze 4x4 then wrap gauze around it to hold it on. should I continue this & for how long. There is a fine line of red on the outer edge of the wound no warmth or swelling though and no pain, so I don't think it is infected but the redness if still lingering from the trauma.
