Skin is the most commonly injured tissue and its proper repair is important for reestablishment of its barrier function.
A formulation can be compounded to contain the proper combination of active ingredients and an appropriate base to treat a specific type of wound. For example, each time a wound needs to be cleaned there is 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.
Compounded medications can help with the following:
- Donor Sites
- Therapy for Wounds
- Skin Irritations
- Odor Control
