Wound Care Products for Pressure Sores and Diabetic Ulcers
November 8th, 2010 at 2:09 pm
If you have a bedsore, diabetic ulcer or other dermal ulcer, or you are caring for someone who does, it is critical that you are receiving assistance or advice from a medical specialist. Treating pressure sores (bedsores) and dermal ulcers can be challenging as these wounds heal slowly and must be attended to carefully. Treatment plans includes everything from pressure reduction to wound cleaning/debridement, wound dressings, hydrotherapy, antibiotics, dietary supplements and muscle spasm relief. Even with the best of care, sometimes surgery is required.
Allegro’s wound care category has a variety of products designed to protect wounds and speed healing. The type of products used depends on the stage and severity of the wound. Below are our most popular wound care products for pressure sores, venous and arterial leg and foot ulcers.
