Wound Care Treatment

A wound is a break in the skin or tissues that may be caused by an accident, injury, surgery, disease or several other factors, and often involves bleeding, redness, swelling, pain, tenderness and other symptoms. They may occur nearly anywhere on the body. While many wounds can be treated at home by simply cleaning and bandaging the wound, more severe wounds may require professional care.

Many patients with skin ulcers, burns and other types of wounds face difficulty with the healing process for these troubling wounds, especially if the patient has diabetes. There are several different treatment options available for wounds resistant to conventional therapies. Some of these may include creams, ointments, synthetic skin grafts and other therapies that promote natural healing within the skin to avoid wound complications.

Diabetic Wound Management:

People with diabetes are at high risk of developing problems with their feet. Ulcers and other wounds commonly form on the foot’s bottom and can easily become infected or lead to other serious complications. Ulcers may develop due to poor circulation, lack of feeling in the feet, irritation or trauma.

Once a wound has been detected, it should be treated immediately in order to prevent complications from developing. Diabetic wound treatment focuses on relieving pressure from the area and removing dead skin cells and tissue through a process called debridement. The wound is then medicated and dressed to prevent infection and promote healing. Patients may be required to wear special footwear or a brace to relieve pressure and irritation to the wound for more severe wounds.
