Skin wounds, such as pressure sores, are a common health concern. That’s why Palisades Compounding Pharmacy offers custom compounding solutions to patients with hard-to-heal wounds.
Such wounds often may be associated with bedridden elderly patients. 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 patient’s skin wounds in a variety of ways. They try to improve the patient’s mobility. They improve the patient’s nutritional intake. They may prescribe a number of topical medications for the wound area.
We offer 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.
