types of skin wounds
Wounds are typically classified as superficial injuries, deep cuts, or blunt traumas that have resulted in a bruise or damage underneath the skin. They can be caused by a wide variety of reasons, including a sudden accident, surgery, and an underlying medical condition. The most common types of wounds we treat include:
- Diabetic foot/leg ulcers
- Pressure ulcers and bedsores
treatments for skin wounds
The treatment for skin wounds will vary, depending on the type, location, size, depth, and severity of your injury. During your exam, Dr. Ranjan will assess the area of concern and develop a custom treatment plan. For minor and superficial wounds, antiseptic ointments may be used along with at-home care to prevent infection and promote healing. For deeper lacerations, skin glue or stitches may be necessary to seal the cut and the wound will be dressed for protection. In cases of infection, antibiotics will be prescribed and we may recommend a tetanus booster, depending on the type of injury and your immunization history. In severe cases, minor surgery may be needed.
healing wound care
A minor cut or scrape may not seem like a big deal, but if it's not treated properly, it can lead to infection and more extensive damage to the soft tissues and bone. Reaching out to your primary physician can ensure that you get the treatment you need. This is especially important if you are experiencing a chronic wound or recently suffered from severe injury or gash. Contact Nest Family Medicine in Plano, TX to schedule your appointment. Our office also accepts a large number of insurance plans and Medicare.
