Wound care refers to specific types of treatment for soft tissue damage or open ulcers due to post-surgical complications, burns, trauma, skin and soft tissue infections, pressure injuries and diabetic foot ulcers
Diabetic foot ulcer
A diabetic foot ulcer is a frequent complication of diabetes mellitus.
Two to ten percent of diabetic people have foot ulcers.
Leg ulcers are open wounds on the legs. Some causes of leg ulcers are venous insufficiency, low arterial blood flow, and diabetes.
An ingrown nail is one of the most common nail diseases in which the corner of the nail curves down into the skin.

Skin and soft-tissue infections
Skin and soft–tissue infections (SSTIs) are infections that can involve the skin and the subcutaneous tissue until the fascia or muscle, with different clinical presentations.
Pressure Ulcer – Bed Sores
Pressure ulcers are localized damage to the skin and/or underlying tissue that usually occur over a bony prominence as a result of long-term pressure.
Chronic (Non-healing) wound
Chronic (Non-healing) wound is a lesion that doesn’t heal in a specific time, between 4 weeks to 3 months, having a delay in the wound healing.
Post-surgical infected wound
A post-surgical infected wound is an infection that occurs after surgery in the part of the body where the surgery took place. It can happen in up to 3% of patients.

Topical Oxygen and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Use and Healing Rates in Diabetic Foot Ulcers
Oxygen delivery is a crucial element involved in wound healing and it is widely recognized that limited oxygenation can lead to a chronic nonhealing ulcer. A retrospective review comparing healing rates of diabetic foot ulcers utilizing Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) or Topical Oxygen Therapy (TOT) was performed.
A wound is a break or damage in the surface of the skin and it can be accidental as well as surgical. Debridement plays an imperative role in healing a complicated injuries. There are various methods that are available and Maggot Debridement could be one of this. Maggot therapy is a type of biotherapy involving the introduction of live, disinfected maggots (fly larvae). The flies used most often for the purpose of maggot therapy are blow flies of the Calliphoridae: the blow fly species used most commonly is Lucilia sericata, the common green bottle fly.
It is an effective technique for debriding wounds that was used especially in the previous centuries.
Reportedly about 20% of people who visit a doctor for advice regarding a foot problem have an ingrown toenail. The most common cause of an ingrowing toenail is not cutting your toenails properly, by cutting them too short or down the sides of your toenail, and wearing shoes which are not wide enough to fit your toes in their natural position.
