It is not all that uncommon to develop a wound on your leg or foot, but the red flags to look out for are when they are either not healing in a timely manner, or they are of a severe enough nature that you cannot reasonably expect them to heal on their own without help. AT the office of Dr. David Morris, you can depend on our Plantation leg wound care.
While feet, especially when bare, are more susceptible to wounds, your legs are not at all immune to them. This is especially true when your legs are exposed, such as when wearing shorts or a skirt, or bathing gear. Yes, beaches and even pools are places where an abrasion, scrape, deep cut, etc. is likely to occur. But it can also be due to a stumble or fall or walking into something sharp, for example. There are almost as many ways go get a leg wound as there are leg wounds. Unless the result is bleeding severely, or the skin is cut enough to require stitches, you may not need our attention; at least not at first. Simply cleaning, disinfecting, and dressing it is typically enough to get the healing process jump started and to prevent any infections. However, if you have an underlying condition that may make you more prone to complications, such as type 1 or type 2 diabetes, it is a good idea to be more proactive when it comes to our Plantation leg wound care. However, in any instance, be aware of the adjustments and changes to the wound, and if it is remaining the same or you see swelling or any other signs of a possible infection, don’t hesitate to contact us.
