Managing wound symptoms
Wounds represent a breakdown in the protective function of the skin,
and provide a portal of entry for bacteria.1
The body has developed a structured process for repairing the damage.
In chronic wounds, however, the process of repair is disrupted and the barrier to healing needs to be removed in order to repair the wound.1
