If you or a loved one has a wound that hasn't begun to heal within a month or hasn't healed entirely in two months, you may have what is known as a “chronic” or “non-healing” wound.
There are many factors that can cause a wound to become chronic. Some wounds are associated with complications from diabetes or poor circulation. Other result from pressure ulcers and trauma. Chronic, non-healing wounds can have serious health consequences and may adversely affect your quality of life.
