Should I Seek Wound Care Services?

A wound that fails to heal after 4 weeks or less can become infected, which leads to serious health complications. The body uses oxygen to heal wounds. Chronic and non-healing wounds are a common side effect of respiratory and cardiovascular disorders because a patient’s ability to absorb oxygen is hindered. Diabetes also increases the chances a patient will develop non-healing wounds. Often, difficult-to-heal wounds complicate the treatment of other severe conditions including cardiac, pulmonary, neuromuscular, endocrine, and renal diseases.

Perry County Wound Care Center has been healing wounds 40% faster than the national average four years in a row!

How Can I Care for My Wounds at Home?

Check your wound regularly for signs of infection or lack of oxygen:

  • Pus leaking from the wound
  • Blue or dark discoloration around the wound
  • Redness and/or swelling around the wound
  • An unusual odor coming from the wound
  • The pain has not decreased
  • The wound is unusually warm or feels hot when touched
