The main complication of an open wound is the risk of infection...... Minor wounds can be treated at home. First, wash and disinfect the wound to remove all dirt and debris.... treatments for an open wound include pain medication and antivioe..... Your doctor may also prescribe penicillin or another antibiotic if there’s an infection or high risk for developing an infection.....
