For Wound Care, We Go a Cut Above

At CareFirst Urgent Care, our experienced medical practitioners have seen and treated countless cuts and other wounds. We know there are some things you can’t just put a bandage on and forget about.

When you need laceration treatment, you’ll know – you’re bleeding heavily, your cut is deep, or you’ll see something that just plain concerns you. You should seek medical attention right away, even if your wound isn’t putting your life in danger. But before you go get treatment for your cut, there are some things you need to do.

Help Us Help You

We’re always ready to treat non-emergency wounds, but being proactive with your wound care on your way to urgent care makes everyone’s life easier. Keep this in mind before your visit:

  • Clean the area – To help your laceration heal and prevent infection, you should disinfect the wound and clean the area around it as soon as possible. Rubbing alcohol, though painful, may be your best bet. If you got your wound from a fall, make sure to get rid of any dirt, rocks, or other debris in and around it.
  • Cover the wound – Keep your cut bandaged or wrapped in gauze, depending on its size, until you’re getting professional wound care at an urgent care clinic. This will stop at least some of the bleeding, decrease your risk of infection, and keep additional debris from entering.

Though it is possible to treat a laceration that has become infected, you don’t want to wait to get to that point. Infection can not only worsen your pain in the affected area, but it can also give you a fever.
