Wound Care Made Simple

Wounds of all sizes, including small cuts and large surgical incisions, should be kept moist and covered with an adhesive bandage. Several studies have shown that covered wounds heal quicker, have less scarring, and are less painful than their uncovered counterparts.

Most superficial cuts and abrasions, minor burns, biopsy sites, and surgical incisions should be cared for as follows:

  • Cleanse the wound with hydrogen peroxide applied with a cotton swab
  • Lightly apply Aquaphor ™ or Polysporin ™ ointment over the wound
  • Cover the wound with an adhesive bandage or gauze square
  • Repeat twice per day

If a wound fails to heal or becomes infected, contact our office immediately at (561) 739-5252.
