Skin ulcers occur from a variety of reasons, including abrasion and poor circulation. Some diabetic patients eventually develop foot ulcers. These wounds are a prime entryway for infection.
Pressure ulcers (decubitus ulcers or bedsores) develop on areas of the body where the blood supply has been reduced because of prolonged pressure. These may occur in people confined to bed or a chair, or in those who must wear a hard brace or plaster cast.
Snell's Pharmacy has the ability to compound several unique topical gels/creams that may be easy to use, painless, and custom made to meet your individual needs to alleviate pain, kill localized infection and encourage prompt healing. Medications may include Phenytoin, Misoprostol, Metronidazole, Lidocaine, Nystatin and Colchicine.
