Using  PVC hot water bottles can indeed relieve back pain, joint pain, dysmenorrhea and other lesions, but we also have some misunderstandings when applying hot compresses. Today, I want to share with you. What are the misunderstandings when PVC hot water bottle is used for hot compress.

Four misunderstandings of hot compress

1. Not everyone is suitable for hot compresses

People with insensitive or abnormal skin sensation, such as the elderly, children, diabetic patients with neuropathy and stroke, should not blindly apply hot compresses. If you need a hot compress, you must pay attention to controlling the temperature, otherwise it is easy to burn.

2. Not all cases can be heated

If the skin has ulceration or skin disease, it is necessary to avoid hot compresses on the surface of the skin lesions to prevent infection or irritation of the skin disease and aggravate symptoms.

In addition, in the early stage of acute soft tissue injuries such as sprains and strains, there is blood stasis under the skin, so it is not advisable to apply hot compresses within 24-48 hours, otherwise local swelling will be aggravated.

3. Not all diseases are suitable for hot compresses

Hot compresses are mainly for cold symptoms, so patients with warm symptoms should not apply hot compresses. This group of people often shows that they are easy to get angry, especially afraid of heat, or accompanied by bad breath, constipation, and women also have menorrhagia and so on.

4. The hot compress is by no means the hotter the better

The temperature of the hot compress should not be too high, usually 40-50 degrees Celsius, and the hot compress is about 20 minutes. If applying heat to delicate areas of skin, the temperature needs to be lower.

At the same time, it is necessary to avoid fixing hot compresses on one part for a long time, otherwise it is easy to cause burns. The most common one is the improper use of hot water bottles to cause skin burns.
