    Default Deep abrasion heal time (down to subcutaneous fat)?

    I know that plenty of road rash threads exist, but none really specify the heal time for the really raw rash that goes down to the subcutaneous tissue/ fat. I messed up my left shoulder and back really bad 2 days ago and went to a local clinic yesterday to get it treated and acquire antibiotics/ high strength ibuprofen. For those who have gotten this deep road rash; what was your heal time before the wound was at least at a scab-like/partially healed phase?

    I had some deep road rash that was probably severe 2nd degree. For me it took about 2 weeks to finally scab over completely with a solid scab. Around a month into the healing process i went to the beach with some friends 2 days in a row, and the salt water really sped up the healing process. Its been like 6 weeks and now I'm all closed up. Now, mine wasn't as bad as yours but hopefully this is of any help, haha

    Your healing time is entirely based on YOU. It depends on what you eat, how stressed your body is, the chemicals you put on it, YOU.
    What you put on the wound is especially important; IMO/IME antibiotics are a bad idea until you have exhausted all other topical treatments. They isolate the strongest bacteria and are relatively ineffective in hydrating the skin.
    Ibuprofen suppresses your immune system.

    Treat rash like a burn.
    Use antiseptic oils, spray bottles with oil/distilled water work wonders.
    Every Roman's first aid kit contained Lavender.
    Rose, sage, cedar, raw honey is an ancient topical remedy, and others++++
    Keep the bandage fresh and regularly allow the wound to dry.
    Drain any fluid and monitor the color of the scabbing areas and skin around the scab.
    Keep it dry!!! Do hooker showers if you have to, but it needs to stay dry.
    Don't drink while healing.
    The medical establishment is not the answer for something like this.
    You CAN effectively treat yourself with natural, time-tested remedies.
    Live well.

    also, wtf.

    I'm just doing what the clinic has told me to do so far, but I figured drying it out was a good idea so I've been letting it dry for the past few hours and it actually feels better (albeit my skin has tightened). In regards to antibiotics; I have had staph before so I am not gonna risk that again, and I only take the ibuprofen before sleep (accidentally rolling on it is painful). I have been spreading silver sulfadiazine on the wound, which prevents any bacterial growth and accelerates heal time; I was just trying to grasp a feasible figure for heal time as I am about to travel abroad for 2 1/2 weeks.

    Traveling abroad? Be sure to keep it clean! I'd agree that antibiotics aren't the answer. Broad spectrum antibiotics actually made a skin infection worse for me a few years back. It allowed the resistant bacteria to beat out the typical stuff and I had to switch to sulfa horse antibiotics. You may be complaining now, but if you go on sulfas, you will have something to REALLY complain about. I'd just do my best to keep it clean and dry. Neosporin is a bad idea because you develop an allergic reaction if you use it too long, especially over large areas. Just treat yourself right, take care of it, and let your body do what its built to do...HEAL!

    Get well soon!

    he speaks da truf! ummmm try to find something called liker bayer medicinal spray or something like that. that what i used on my bad road rash, and what it does is just target bad bacteria instead of ALL bacteria (like good bacteria that helps you heal) and it stops pain for a while

    get some colliodal silver from your local health food store and spray it on everytime you change your dressings. DON'T LET IT DRY COMPLETELY. that will just worsen the scarring. Go check out some johnson and johnson tough pads, Hydrocolloidal pads, and do some research on calcium algate. these will all reduce scarring and speed up your healing time.

    I think that would be redundant as I am ALREADY using SILVER sulfadiazine, right?. For antibiotics I am taking an amoxacillin tr-k crv (augmentin), not neosporin.

    good post, I totally forgot about colloidal silver. It's highly effective and been used for centuries.
    In the old times people would use a water from a silver pitcher. Great for knocking out the serious virus/bacterial growth both internally and externally.
    True, too dry and you risk ripping the damaged skin. That's why it's so important to use compounds/techniques that moisturize the wound.
    Rosewater is one of my favorites for the lesser scrapes.
    Lavender oil is great but has to be mixed with something to avoid painful over-drying.

    staph....you didn't take care of yourself right.
    ...And you can't take all the cures at once. Antibiotics have powerful limiting effects on your immune system.

    I guess, But I personally prefer to stray away from the chemicals. I like a natural healing so it improves my immune system rather than limiting it. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger right? last time i took antibiotics was when i had my tonsils removed 3 years ago. they sketch me out

    I agree that antibiotics are only necessary in extreme cases, if its not infected you dont need them. Antibiotics have ****ed up my digestive system bad before, they arent exactly 100% safe and awesome

    Johnson and Johnson have this new "ultra pad" it has a built in sponge like material that wicks away all excess plasma and can be used when a lot of drainage is needed. unforntunately they cost about $22 a box but its suppose to stay on for 4-5 days without needing to be changed
