How should you treat an open astro turf burn on your knee?
I was playing a rugby match on a special astro turf pitch. I was tackled and went down on my knee at speed. The skin of my knee was wiped off with the fall and it left an open graze. It isn't bleeding blood but I need to bandage it or something with some sort of dressing. Thanks.

You absolutely have to clean it with soap and water. Astro turf is full of germs from people spitting and sweating on it. People have died from artificial turf burns that quickly cause a staph infection. clean it. and watch it very closely for signs of infection. If there are any signs of infection go to a doctor immediately.

Those hurt! The easiest way to treat this is as if it were a burn. Get a non-stick gauze pad from your pharmacy. They are usually white pads with a clear plastic covering that will prevent them from sticking to your wound. Treat the area first with a wound wash or peroxide. Since this is an abrasion injury, it is likely that particles or dirt were ground into the wound, and you should clean it thoroughly to prevent infection. This will burn, but it'll save you some trouble down the line. Apply a burn dressing or anti-biotic dressing like Neosporin, and then cover with the gauze pad. Tape the gauze in place, or use an ace bandage. Taping will hold this in place better, but the ace bandage might give you more flexibility. Change your dressing once a day, and keep the wound uncovered whenever possible. It should dry out within 3 to 7 days.
