Skin Tears are tiny cracks in the skin's upper layers. Skin tears develop on skin that is fragile, overly-dry or malnourished. Elderly people and those with poor circulation (due to diabetes or immobility) are the likeliest targets.
In their most mild form, skin tears look like scaly, rash-like wounds. In most serious cases, skin tears become infected and develop into deeper abrasions. Generally, skin tears look slightly red or inflamed, and will feel sore or taut. Skin tears are thought of by wound centers as precursors to more severe and deeper-reaching wounds or sores. It’s essential to treat skin tears proactively and protect the area in order to deter further breakdown.
Terrasil Wound Care guards against bacterial infection while promoting healing and calming soreness at the wound site.
