Skin Wounds: A Common Health Concern
Center Pharmacy of Columbus, GA, realizes that skin wounds, such as pressure sores, are a common health concern. That's why we offer custom compounding solutions to patients with hard-to-heal wounds.
Such wounds often may be associated with elderly, bedridden individuals, but almost anyone who becomes ill and immobile, or whose movement is seriously impaired, may be at risk for a skin wound. Wounds can form on any body part that bears weight for an extended period of time without relief. Age, weight, and nutrition are just a few of the factors that determine whether you or a loved one may develop a skin wound, and how long it may take to heal.
Treating Skin Wounds
Healthcare professionals treat a patient's skin wounds in a variety of ways. They try to improve the patient's mobility, and to improve the patient's nutritional intake. Additionally, they may prescribe a number of topical medications for the wound area.
Center Pharmacy Compounding Solutions for Skin Wounds
Center Pharmacy offers custom-compounded medications that can be applied to the wound. These medications are designed to:
- Stimulate new tissue growth
- Reduce pain
- Discourage bacterial overgrowth
We also can compound other medications which may be applied to the area surrounding the wound to increase blood flow to the wound area. With a healthcare provider's prescription, we may be able to make these medications available to patients who do not have wounds, but suffer from poor circulation to their extremities.
