Know the Colors that Indicate Wound Healing Stages

A gel created from blood pressure medicine is showing promise as a treatment for chronic wounds.

The color of a wound can tell you a lot about the progress of treatment.

Color is often used as a signal and to issue a warning: think stoplights and fire trucks. It’s an instantly recognizable way to indicate the condition of healing wounds, of which you need to be aware.

Bacterium Identified That May Delay Wound Healing

A gel created from blood pressure medicine is showing promise as a treatment for chronic wounds.

When certain receptors are compromised, a specific bacterium on the skin can delay wound healing.

If a wound is properly cleaned and covered, the chances are quite high that it will heal properly. An infected wound will appear swollen, may have drainage of a cloudy or unpleasant color, and the surrounding skin may feel hot to the touch, according to Wound Source. The patient’s fever could skyrocket to over 101 degrees Fahrenheit, and this person must seek medical attention from a clinician as soon as possible. When wound care guidelines are appropriately followed, the chance of infection diminishes, yet scientists at the University of Manchester have determined bacterium, which is already present on the skin in many individuals, may slow the wound healing process.

A molecule contained in a parasitic worm could hold a solution to treating slow wound healing.

Learning the signs of chronic wound development can help patients seek help sooner.

One of the keys to successful treatment of chronic wounds is early detection. Recognizing the seriousness of a wound early can be an important step in addressing the patient’s needs and providing the right kind of wound care. But clinicians can’t provide timely treatment unless the patient recognizes they need help. Which makes learning how to recognize the stages of chronic wound development a vital tool in the patient’s battle to recover.
