Wound care

At PharmacyMax Labs, we offer wound care solutions to patients with difficult to heal

wounds.

Wound care compounding involves several approaches and medications applied

topically. Some of the medications are designed with the goal of stimulating new tissue

growth, reducing pain, and discouraging bacterial overgrowth. While other medications

are designed to increase blood flow to the wound and is applied to the skin that borders

the wound.

We also recommend these medication for patients who do not have wounds, but who

have very poor circulation to a toe, foot, or leg. If you have a wound that is difficult to

heal or a limb with poor circulation, do not hesitate to contact us. We can provide you

and your doctor with more information about our wound treatment protocols.

Medications which improve capillary blood flow can be added to a compounded

medication to enhance circulation at the wound margins and promote healing of the

injured area, and Decubitus ulcers, venous stasis and diabetic ulcers, traumatic wounds,

and burns may heal more quickly if treated topically with phenytoin. topical anesthetics

can be added to relieve pain.

The choice of cream, ointment, or gel can be clinically significant.Each time a

wound needs to be cleaned, there is the potential for disruption of new tissue growth.

Gels, which are more water soluble than creams or ointments, may be preferable for

wound use because a gel can be rinsed from the wound by irrigation. Ointments may

contain polyethylene glycol (PEG), which can be absorbed from open wounds and

damaged skin. If the wound is quite large and too much PEG is absorbed, it can lead to

renal toxicity.

Another useful dosage form is the “polyox bandage” – which can be puffed onto a

wound and will adhere even if exudate is present. A polyox bandage can be

compounded to contain the active ingredient(s) of your choice.

particularly important if a preparation also contains drugs that can cause

photosensitivity.
