Wound care applications can be critical to the quality of life for a patient. In many cases, the ability to heal a wound prevents the unnecessary amputation of a limb or part of a limb. Helping a patient improve wound healing brings enormous satisfaction.
Schwieterman Pharmacy and Compounding Center knows that skin wounds such as pressure sores and skin ulcers are a common health concerns. That’s why we offer custom compounding solutions to patients with hard-to-heal wounds. Pressure sores are a result of prolonged pressure over bony body prominences which cause depleted blood supply and poor tissue nutrition. Skin ulcers can occur in diabetic patients. The ulcers are the results of a combination of nerve damage and impaired blood circulation which are frequent chronic conditions associated with diabetes. Age, weight, and nutrition are just a few of the factors that determine whether you may develop a skin wound and how long it may take to heal.
We offer custom-compounded medications that can be applied to the wound. These medications are designed to stimulate new tissue growth, reduce pain, increase circulation to the area, and discourage bacterial overgrowth. Schwieterman Pharmacy and Compounding Center can prepare products in different combinations and different dosage forms to best fit the patient’s condition. Whether you suffer from a skin wound, would like to prevent one, or merely wish to improve circulation to an area, we urge you to contact us.
