Human body skin is known to be the largest organ in the whole system. The main its function is protection of your system from external stimuli like dust, mud and microbes, thermo-regulation of the body, as well as temperature and tactile reactions.
It’s structure involves following layers: outer epidermis, followed by the dermis that contains the connective tissue, which allows your skin to stretch out while remaining strong. Hypoderma is the deepest layer, includes adipose tissue and helps to isolate the body.
There are many ways to injure the outer and inner skin layers. Usually injury (like tearing, cuts, piercing etc) is called an open wound, opposed to a closed wound, caused by a blunt blow.
Another type is chronic wounds that do not heal up in typical stages or time period.
Minor wounds usually do not require medical treatment and are able to heal by itself, but more complicated cases must be observed by a medical worker to be sure the wound heals properly.
If you are dealing with acute wounds, healing should take place in three phases. But in the case when the wound becomes chronic, this healing process becomes stagnant and impossible.
Depending on the condition of the wound, as well as on the general health condition of a person, health care provider will pick up wound dressings. These bandages have been specifically designed to improve process of recovery.
