Keywords:Folk Medicine, Burn Treatment, Mardin, Modern Medicine
Folk medicine has emerged with the combination of environmental factors with tradition, tradition, and experience. In Mardin, folk medicine methods and practices continue to exist by changing and developing in parallel with the development of modern medicine. In this study, burn treatment applications, which have an important place in the traditional folk medicine of Mardin, are discussed over a sample burn case. The case subject to this study was monitored from the first day, the applications performed were regularly monitored and recorded. The patient's left hand was burned by pouring hot oil. In the first examination at Mardin State Hospital emergency department, a 2nd-degree burn diagnosis was made, the first intervention was performed and the patient was exited. When the pain became unbearable in the following hours, there was a need to resort to folk medicine methods. A folk physician living in the district of Kızıltepe in Mardin province applied to Ş.B. The mixture prepared by the folk physician with two medicines, beeswax, wax, olive oil, and village eggs was applied to the wound periodically. It was observed that the wound healed almost without any scar after a treatment period of approximately two and a half months. The most important feature of this practice is the combination of traditional folk medicine and modern medicine in treatment. The application in this case reveals the importance of using the possibilities of folk medicine and modern medicine together in the treatment of diseases.
