Skin and Wound Treatment
Our specialist nurse led skin treatment unit provides regular treatment for a variety of skin conditions. Even if you have been under another clinic or the NHS, we can help with your treatment, in conjunction with your referring dermatologist. If you don't have a dermatologist, we can help you find one with expertise in your skin condition.
Common conditions we treat include:
- Skin infections
- Chronic wounds
- Surgical wounds
- Skin allergy (allergy testing)
- Hyperhidrosis of hands and feet
- Photodynamic therapy
Non healing Wounds
We can help investigate the causes of non-healing or slow to heal wounds. These can be from an injury, a medical condition like diabetes, a surgical wound, a stoma or a leg ulcer. We may perform tests to establish the causes of slow healing:
- Blood tests
- Biopsy from near the wound area
- Swabs from the wound to look for infection
- Vascular studies for the blood supply
Our consultant dermatologists, surgeons and specialist nurses can advise further. If you would like to enquire, please contact us.
We have significant experience in the diagnosis and treatment of leg ulceration, aiming to heal the ulcers and alleviate pain and discomfort. Mostly, leg ulcers are related to poor circulation, therefore we have close working relationships with vascular surgeons if needed. Other cases of leg ulceration can involve conditions such as diabetes, vasculitis, immune diseases and other injuries or infections. If you need help with a leg ulcer, please contact us.
