How to get the dirt out of this wound?
I was playing basketball yesterday and it got pretty intense so I got tackled to the ground. I got a deep wound in my hand and there was bleeding and I rinsed it under some cold water but there was still gravel and dirt in there... I put some vaseline and a bandaid on it yesterday and today we peeled off some of the skin to try to get the dirt out but it's kind of under this "slimy" shiny clear stuff under the skin layer now. I don't know how to get the dirt out and my mom said it would just come out on its own but my dad has a similar wound from when he was younger and there was dirt in it but the skin grew over it so there's a dark spot on his hand now. I don't want to get a pair of tweezers in there though and make the wound deeper or push the dirt in deeper...

Do I have to go to the doctor (although my parents probably won't take me) or will it be alright on its own?

benzoyl peroxide it cleans dirt out of wounds it stings though

wash with alcohol

Wash it out

if you have a shower massage, use that to pulsate it out or a water pik. it could be painful. can soak it in some warm water with table salt in it, but need to do this a few times a day. signs of infections, redness, swelling, heat, pain and pus, difficulty moving hand. You would have to sterilize the tweezers in boiling water for about 10" or wipe them with alcohol and let air dry. It could be painful to do this your self.If not better by tomorrow or wound not closing on it's own, be seen by MD. apply neosporin or triple antibiotic after ea soaking, keep covered.

Wash it out with IV fluid or DISTILLED WATER. then pour some hydrogen peroxide.

With the help of a syringe you can sort of make a water jet/spray to help you wash out the dirt.

You need to see a doctor in case of infection and the dirt. If you leave it on its own it will grow over and that dirt will be permanent, go see a doctor and he/she can properly take the dirt out :)

Hydrogen peroxide is only good when you initially cleanse a wound - repeated uses actually removes newly formed healthy tissue.

You Mom is correct that most foriegn material will be 'pushed' outward as the wound naturaly heals.

And since so much time has passed and your hesitant to see a doctor I would suggest bandaging the wound with a simple dry bandage with only some triple antibiotic ointment (if you're not allergic) available at any pharmacy or wal-mart. Watch the wound for signs of infection; increased tenderness/pain, swelling/puffy, pus (yellowish green discharge), red streaks from the palm up the arm, or tenderness in that sides armpit.

Next time a similar wound occurs it's important to get the wound as clean as you can - scrubbing the wound with a soft brush and normal soap is painful but ensures no contaminants.

It may get infected if you do not clean it properly, so I'd try to get the gravel out. You may need to get some tweezers or see a doctor if it's swelling.

If the dirt is stuck in the wound and it grows over it, there may very well be a problem, and it will need to be re-opened.

Peroxide and (I know this will sound harsh) a nail brush. Believe it or not they use it on your organs after surgery to make sure they clean all the infection off your stuff. My mom's a nurse.

Use Peroxide... Burns like a mofo. Real bubbly to lift junk and germs out though.

Rinse or soak your hand in peroxide. You could do this several times a day to make sure you get all the dirt out. However you do it, it will foam up for a while, but it will help to clean the cut.

Hydrogen Peroxide is pretty good about getting dirt out of a wound, and it doesn't burn like alcohol. I would try that
