As a certified wound care specialist, I primarily care for wounds that are either caused by lymphedema or complicated by chronic edema/swelling. Primary focus is to reduce the edema and make proper wound dressings to allow healing and prevent infection.
Skin care is an essential part of managing Lymphedema as well as wounds. I utilize specialized lotions to prevent infection and maintain healthy skin throughout wound care and complete decongestive treatment.
Multilayered bandaging is very successful at decreasing chronic edema that is preventing wound healing.
