I rinse wounds with sterile saline to make sure they don't go anywhere, then wash with fluorhexadine and plenty of water and the use the LITHA method. Leave It The Hell Alone. I might cold hose or hot compress.
Anything you put on a would prevents drainage, and can actually cause proud flesh. For large wounds on the lower legs, they should be stable bandaged to keep them clean and compress the granulation tissue. Granulation tissue is good, many people mistake it for proud flesh. As long as it is not severely overgrown it is granulation and should be left alone.
When there is skin on the would, I will put corona ointment in it to keep it moisturized and that's it!
