Most wounds heal on their own within two to four weeks. However, sometimes they take longer to heal due to blood-flow problems, infection, poor nutrition or an underlying health condition. These wounds may require specialty care.
Carle wound therapy experts include physicians, infectious disease specialists, a podiatrist and certified wound-care nurses.
