Pediatric Wound Care

We provide customized care for each child and each type of wound, such as:

  • Abscesses: red, swollen, infected bumps on the skin that are filled with pus.
  • Burns: minor first- and second-degree skin wounds from heat, chemical or electrical burns.
  • Gastrostomy tube site problems: when skin breaks down around a gastrostomy tube, which is placed through the skin of the abdomen directly into the stomach to feed kids who can’t get enough nutrition by mouth.
  • Pilonidal cysts: abnormal sacs of embedded hair and skin debris, usually located near the tailbone, above the crease of the buttocks.
  • Pressure sores: open skin wounds from long periods of inactivity like sitting in a wheelchair or lying in a bed, or from medical devices like splints and casts that press against the skin.
  • Surgical wounds: from surgical cuts. 
  • Trauma wounds: caused by accidents, bites, gun shots, etc.
