Compounding for Wound Healing
Apple Valley’s Compounding Pharmacists Can Assist In Healing Your Wound
Apple Valley Pharmacy has extensive experience in assisting physicians and patients in healing difficult wounds. We can prepare a variety of medications in different combinations and different dosage forms to best fit the patient’s condition.
Apple Valley’s Compounding Pharmacists Can Formulate Various Wound Care Medications
There are numerous types of compounded medications that can be used to aid in the treatment of a variety of wounds. Some of these compounds include:
Topical antibiotic solutions to aid in maintaining an infection-free wound as the healing process is underway.
Tissue growth stimulating gels or solutions to encourage the growth of healthy tissue.
Topical bandages for hard to heal areas, such as the oral cavity.
Because patients vary in size, symptoms, and scope of wound; commercially available medications sometimes may not give you the best care.
Apple Valley’s Custom-Compounding Medications Can Be Applied Directly to The Wound
The proprietary formulations compounded at Apple Valley Pharmacy are designed to:
Stimulate new tissue growth
Discourage bacterial growth
Treat infection directly at the wound site
Our compounding pharmacist and pharmacy technicians can compound other medications that may be applied to the area surrounding the wound to reduce pain associated with dressing changes. Topical anesthetics, anti-inflammatories and analgesics can be applied to the wound prior to wound cleaning to reduce pain:
• Spray • Gel • Cream
