When should I bring a wound to Dr.Gs urgent care for treatment?
Someone can receive a wound for a variety of reasons. In fact, if you have a compromised immune system, an infection, or are healing from previous trauma, it may be easier for you to suffer a wound. If your wound is healing slowly or remains inflamed and red for longer than usual, it is usually best to get a medical professional to examine it for signs of infection or other complications. Other symptoms of infections include when a wound oozes or has yellow or green discharge. In some cases, antibiotics must be prescribed to fight the infection before an injury can heal properly.
What should I expect for wound care at Dr.Gs Urgent Care?
When you visit our state of the art urgent care center to get a wound treated, you’ll be seen by our highly experienced staff and a board-certified doctor. Wound treatment generally includes
- Cleaning your wound with warm water and antibacterial soap
- Gently drying the wound.
- Assessing if the injury needs sutures.
- Applying an antibiotic cream, such as Neosporin.
- Apply clean, sterile bandages to the affected area.
What factors could be preventing my wound from healing correctly?
Many factors could be preventing your wound from healing properly. However, the most common reasons often include:
- The skin is too dry, not allowing new skin to grow as quickly
- Dead tissue is blocking healthy tissue from growing and filling in a wound
- Medications can slow down the healing process in some cases
- The older you get, the longer it takes for wounds to heal.
When you visit Dr.Gs Urgent Care, our board-certified doctors will review with you your current medical history and what medications you may be taking. This information will help inform them if there are any potential roadblocks from you healing quicker. Additional x-rays and lab tests may be needed to diagnose your wound accurately. The results and images from these diagnostic tests will be reviewed with you, and you will also be given copies. These results can be forwarded to another doctor upon request.
Dr.Gs Urgent Care has three locations in the area. All sites are open seven days a week from 9 am to 9 pm.
We look forward to meeting you and helping you feel better by treating your wounds!
