Wound healing refers to a living organism’s replacement of destroyed or damaged tissue by newly produced tissue. In undamaged skin, the epidermis and dermis form a protective barrier against the external environment.
Wound care and treatment is an important process to avoid serious complications. Without proper care, a wound can turn into serious infections such as cellulitis or sepsis. The first couple weeks are the most important time to make sure you’re maintaining proper wound care management. If the wound is deeper or you find the wound is not healing properly, you may need 24-hour care to evaluate and treat the wound properly. This is also a good option if there are underlying health issues that could affect the healing process.
