Health Information Burns, cuts, grazes, or accidents and falls in the home or on sports fields can cause damage to the skin and cause wounds. The time a wound takes to heal depends on; the size and depth of the wound, how well it has been cleaned and cared for, which products have been used to protect the wound and the patient’s general health. Wounds that take longer than expected to heal are called chronic wounds. Find advice on wound care and treatment from Health Information Australia can be found below.
