Have you recently experienced trauma, such as a burn, sprain, broken bone, or minor laceration? Do you have a wound or cut that is slow to heal or isn’t healing as quickly as it should? Avoid a costly trip to the emergency room and visit the board-certified doctors at My InstaDoc Urgent Care Clinic in Monroe, NJ. We can provide immediate care and assist with the healing of your nonlife-threatening wounds and trauma. Our state of the art urgent care center is equipped with digital x-rays, and an onsite lab to allow our doctors to diagnose and treat your health concerns.

A wound can occur for some different reasons. These causes can include burns, skin cancer, trauma, infection, diabetes, or if an immune system is compromised. Concerned that a loved one has a wound that is not healing correctly, or you have an injury that is slow to heal? Come to My InstaDoc Urgent Care Walk In Clinic today so our highly-experienced physicians can take a look.

When you visit our urgent care clinic with a wound that isn’t healing correctly, our medical staff will apply wound care to the affected area. This includes:

  • Cleaning the wound with warm water
  • Patting the wound dry
  • Applying an antibiotic cream, such as Neosporin.
  • Apply clean, sterile bandages to the affected area.

A telltale sign that your wound should be immediately seen by a doctor is if you see any oozing, green or yellow discharge, or if it is constantly red and inflamed. These conditions could be signs of an infection. In some cases, antibiotics must be prescribed to bring the infection down before a wound can properly heal.

So what factors may be preventing your wound from healing correctly? These can include:

  • Dead tissue blocking healthy tissue from filling in a wound
  • Dryness not allowing skin to grow as quick
  • Age (As you get older, your wounds take longer to heal)
  • Certain medications can slow down the healing process
  • Smoking

Our doctors at My InstaDoc Urgent Care in Monroe will review with you one on one your current medical and prescription history to see if we can narrow down any potential factors preventing you from healing quicker. We will forward the results of any tests, images, and the details of your treatment at our facility to your primary care doctor at your request.
