christina: in fox 5 health news, the future of treating hand injuries may be found inside a glove. dari: joining us is dr. devi. good to see you. okay. so what's the thought about this there are a couple of things that are new and put together, like from research in the past. this idea is that with burns, you have a few problems that, first of all, you have a severe hand injury, and you put some kind of bandage on it and you
5:45 pm
can relationship off the skin. just like when you put a band-aid on. having a silicone glove, which is what this is made of, makes it easier. it doesn't interact and pull off the skin and cause more damage. and also it's pretty safe in terms of interacting with the body. the other thing is because it's transparent, you can see the wound and see how it's healing which helps. christina: people use -- doctors use a lot of silicone therapy for scars and burns. what is it about silicone that heals that? >> it doesn't cause inflammation and get into the bloodstream and cause other problems. it stays separate. because it's soft, it molds to your body. if your body has a different shape -- i use this for my eye. i got poked in the eye once. i know. but it was like a contact lens. it molds itself around the wound and allows people to look and see what's going on so you can see if there's any redness or anything is going wrong. and i could see through it.
5:46 pm
doctors to see what's going on. they're using it for -- a prototype they're using for burns. there's another they're looking at for strokes. with burns and strokes, people can't move the hand easily, especially if it's weak. some can be from weakness. some can be from contracture. as the hand heals from the bandages or the splints or casting, it gets stuck in a certain position. because the silicone is soft, the person can move it and use tubes and other things to inject medication into the area. dari: that's very promising. >> it's very exciting. we have to see how the trials play out, but i think it's a good thing, a step in the right direction. dari: this is really odd to me. the next time you take a shower, don't go for the soap first or skip it because apparently it can harm your immune system? please explain. christina: too clean, i guess? >> exactly. that's the irony. we're always taught to get rid of germs and clean bacteria. you can be too clean.
5:47 pm
