Wound care compounding involves several approaches and medications applied topically. Some of the medications are designed with the goal of stimulating new tissue growth, reducing pain, and discouraging bacterial overgrowth. Other medications are designed to increase blood flow to the wound and are applied to the skin that borders the wound. We also recommend these medications for patients who do not have wounds, but who have very poor circulation to a toe, foot, or leg. If you have a wound that is difficult to heal or a limb with poor circulation, contact us today for more information on how we can help you…Live Life Better!
Bedsores or pressure sores are a result of prolonged pressure over bony body prominences which cause depleted blood supply and poor tissue nutrition. Similarly, skin ulcers can occur in diabetic patients. The ulcers, usually located on the feet, are the result of a combination of nerve damage and impaired blood circulation that are frequently associated with chronic diabetes.
Wound care applications can be critical to the success of the life and/or viability of the patient. In many instances, the ability to “cure” a wound prevents the unnecessary amputation of a limb or part of a limb.
The PharmaCompoundia has had extensive experience in assisting physicians and patients in healing difficult wounds. We can prepare a variety of medications in different combinations and different dosage forms to best fit the patient’s condition. Additionally, prescription antiseptic medications are available for use in the management of septic wounds.
There are numerous types of compounded medications that can be used to aid in the treatment of many types of wounds. Some of these compounds include:
• Topical antibiotic solutions to aid in maintaining an infection-free wound bed as the healing process is underway.
• Tissue growth stimulating gels or solutions to encourage the growth of healthy tissue.
• Topical bandages for hard to heal areas such as the oral cavity.
