Road Rash Remedy

here is my experience with Road Rash,
just thought i'd share what I did to heal up relatively quickly
hope it helps!
___
EDIT: post accident pic

___

1) ex-nay on the hydro-peroxide (yes it is suppose to kill bacteria, but pharmassits told me it inhibits cell regeneration, so like the initial wash, once or twice, sure, but it WILL burn like a biatch)

2) Keep that Sh!t MOIST (common misconception to let it dry and scab, why? cuz scabbing dries out the skin and wound, and less oxygen goes to the wound = slower to heal)

3)I used gentle non scented foam soap, it was just what I had at the time, and barely had a scent (less chemicals the better)

the foam means less 'scrubbing' action and it just feels better on the wound IMO.
I washed twice with the foam soap then..

4) I mixed it with Cetaphil (stuff I used when I had bad acne, and it helped alot in the repair phase)
*dermatologist recommended skin cleansers and moisturizers specially formulated for dry sensitive skin*


5)Then I used lots of polysporin (complete) not the triple one


6) get this stuff called 2nd skin, seriously works wonders!!

I used poly and kept wrapping it, even putting vaseline on the gauge to try to keep it moist, but it still dries out. When it dried out, my leg hurt like hell to walk on, for the initial steps, but after I was in stride, I walked fine.

Then I started using 2nd skin, the next morning, the pain was literally gone! like friggin amazing

I read other forums from bicyclist and stuff, Americans might have stuff called Tegaderm, but its hard to find apparently
____

so poly under the 2nd skin, and just get some big bandaids, and stick it down for a few days to keep it moist and let it cool your skin.

2nd skin info says change daily, which I found wasteful, so I changed every 3 days

bottom line, keep it moist, keep it clean, when you take off the 2nd skin and after the wash, just put poly on the wound and let the rest of the area breathe.

If on your wound, you get the new buildup of skin lookin white stuff, you should be able to lightly rub it off with your fingers.
__

went down May 25th, this is June 24th


___
EDIT:
in terms of muscle recovery, I am a strong believer in GLUTAMINE
it is an amino acid in powder form that athletes use for muscle recover


just mix and drink with water or juice, kinda makes it taste like mineral water.
best before bed, and right when you wake up

Do you have any after-accident pictures, just to compare? It looks like its healing good, fast, and healthy - no scarring, or at least minimal. Also, is your scabs / wounds tender or painful to the touch? Or not so much anymore?

I hope that no ones gonna need this info, but thought it'd be nice to share

I added the after accident pic for comparison

the meat wise, not tender to touch. i rub cetaphil lotion mixed with poly on it to keep it moist still, but its not really dry anymore..


feels wierd to kneel on after not kneeling for like 3 wks,

I would avoid getting your wounds covered in sea water, salt water is good but sea water is bad, reason being that its absolutely full of bacteria and other microbes that have a reasonably high chance of causing your wound to get infected prolonging the experience, or worse.
I go for iodine and wound pads. Put them on, leave for three days, soak it off, put new one on then change daily. Always leave it for the first three days to prevent disturbing the wound and damaging it further, also soak it off the first time for the same reason. Generally takes about two weeks for the wound to heal up.

Let us know what your remedy is for that bacterial infection! Your scars are a bit lighter because of the sun discoloring the layer of skin underneath your most superficial layer.

Thanks for the pics, looks like its healing good!

to those who jumped all over ajay's weiner, sit down and shush. if you have road rash or simple cuts, where you don't need any medical attention from a hospital, the jersey water will by far speed up the healing process. don't ask me why or how but if you are from here you know it, and nobody gets any infections.

Everyone go to the other thread its called Road Rash Remedy (easier and more preventable way WEAR YOUR GEAR) It will tell you how to really fight road rash easier, and gets rid of it almost instantly. But if that method isnt cool enough for you for instance if you need to show off the guns to all the ladies because who looks cool in leathers and what not follow this thread.

I took a spill on my Longboard a few years ago on a steeeeeep incline.. thankfully i didn't get hit by a cage at the time .. went way out of control in terms of speed blew threw two red lights "in Denver none the less" went into a parking lot and before I slammed into a trash truck decided to slide it out .. had rash from the ball of my ankle up to my shoulder blade.... that **** was horrible ... my bandages would fall off during the night and in the morning when I woke up I would be "scabbed" to the sheets.... I hated life.. wish I would have known about this then lol .. oh well .. I dont even think I have scaring left ...although I never check my self out on it either... Good post

fact of life for push bike racers.

it is 1 reason bicyclists shave legs....heals easier and quicker.

when it happens.... go to the pharmacy bloody and buy some 2nd skin

Go home and asap wash off in shower. then rinse w/h2o2.

dry it w/clean towel or paper

Use a freshly cut piece of aloe vera plant...squeeze the sap over the whole raw patch....the cessation of pain will tell you it is the right thing.

cover w/2nd skin which is a godsend....keep moist and clean....shower is hardest part as it can be painful.

10 days till healed enough that it doesnt stick.

People never cease to amaze me. Whats with some of these posts, self righteous shitty people.

BUTTT, the reason im posting...Thank you, I've had some rash from skateboarding and playen hockey but I was young and it didn't seem like a big deal, so I lost fear of the rash...it seems as we are older, road rash sucks more and takes longer to heal, so ill gear up a bit more. thanks.

another good cure is to get silver sulfadiazine cream, its a prescription cream but it works wonders.

My last scab finally just fell off my knee. I am keeping this one. When I got home from the wreck I poured hydrogen peroxide all over it to disinfect the kept a wet cloth on it all day and just let it be. The 2nd skin would have been a much better move (if the road rash was worse or in a more sensitive area I would have taken more care). Bookmarking this thread though.

get a tan son! haha.

another 'remedy' for healing of small cuts scrapes or whatever is to smear all natural honey over it. honey FTW!

and of course a few heinikens go a long way for the healing process. Booyah
