Skin Wounds: A Common Health Concern
Guy's Pharmacy knows 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 the bedridden elderly. However, almost anyone who becomes ill and immobile, or whose movement is seriously impaired, may be a candidate 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. They improve the patient's nutritional intake. And they may prescribe a number of topical medications for the wound area.
Guy's Pharmacy Compounding Solutions for Skin Wounds
Guy's 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 also can make these medications available to patients who do not have wounds, but suffer from poor circulation to their extremities.
