Wound Care

Tender, raw wounds or ulcers that don’t ease with time need special healing attention. These chronic wounds could cause dilemmas if left unmanaged.

Treatment for wounds

We care for cases with all types of chronic and slow-healing bruises, including ulcers, burns and diseases.

We also strive for hyperbaric oxygen treatment, which can help injuries heal.

Symptoms of chronic wounds

A chronic wound has hindered the remedial process. Signs of chronic wounds include:

Bleeding

Healing wounds will scab over and end bleeding. If a wound still oozes after a few weeks, it could be a chronic bruise.

Discharge

Yellowish, milky or dense liquid oozing from an injury is a sign of infection, which can stop nursing in its tracks.

Fever

If your heat runs higher than 100 degrees Fahrenheit for numerous hours, see a doctor as soon as feasible. A fever could mean a severe dilemma.

Odour

Foul-smelling injuries are liable to have dead tissue that needs to get excluded for healing the wound.

Pain

If pain remains or gets worse weeks after you first remark it, the wound may not be healing.

Swelling

Chronic wounds can appear red and swelling, even after several days or weeks.

Our home-based injury care service includes everything from clinical visits to the patient’s residence. We Assess the nature of the wound, prepare a treatment plan and give the requisite care.
