I had a lot of exudate seeping from my wounded arm when I got cut by a piece of farm equipment. The tear in my flesh was pretty deep, so it took awhile to heal.
I kept a bandage on it, but every time I removed it to replace it, I saw how juicy and soft the skin was. It made me think that maybe it needed to air out, but I asked my doctor and he told me that this type of moisture was a good thing.
The exudate helped my wound heal faster. I’m glad I didn’t go by my own judgement and remove the bandage.
