Wound Care

Wounds can result from a multitude of causes, ranging from traumatic injuries, surgical scars that struggle to heal or even insect bites.

Compounded topical medications offer innovative treatment options for various wound types. Compounded creams, gels, and powders are versatile options for managing wounds, including:

  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Pressure sores
  • Vascular lesions
  • Cellulitis

It’s important to recognize that no two wounds are identical in their healing process or scar formation. There are also several stages of wound healing. Compounding pharmacists play a crucial role in creating specialized therapies that cater to the unique challenges posed by each type of wound. Compounded medications are designed to complement other wound healing strategies.

When formulated by a compounding pharmacist, a single cream or gel can incorporate multiple active ingredients tailored to address the specific requirements of a wound. Our pharmacist also has access to a variety of innovative bases for treatment. This means that instead of relying on three separate medications for pain relief, infection control, and enhanced blood flow, patients can benefit from a single medication for their wounds.
