Gash On My Head.

2013-10-29
By: Sean Ford
Posted in:

I slipped in my friends bathroom the other day and hit my head on the toilet paper roll holder and got a really nasty gash just under one of my dreads. I was afraid I was going to have to brush out my lock to access the hurt area. I was also worried about the fact that I only wash my dreads once a week and didn't want to get an infection. I cleaned the area with peroxide and used and antibacterial soap. I then applied Neosporin to theroot of the lock and using a blow dryer I was able to melt the Neosporin deep under my dread to my scalp. It still hurts but, I am glad I was able to treat without having to upset my lock. If anyone has any thoughts or other suggestions on how I could have done things differently (aside from hurting myself in the first place) please let me know. Peace and love.

Thank you for the advice SE and Ramblingrum. :) I picked up some tea tree oil today and will be using it tonight. I feel better knowing I'll/my lock will be ok.

You did a great job in my opinion. I'd just watch the area and I agree with SE. Add tea tree and/or patchouli to your washing regimen, these are both great at killing bacteria (and fungi).

u couldnt done nothing but stop the bleeding and woulda probably been fine

only if it was bad enough to need stitches would i worry about anything more then stopping the bleeding and maybe cleaning it up a lil

teatree would have been a good option for killing any possible germs
