Wounds need healthy blood circulation to heal properly. But, conditions that affect blood flow, such as diabetes and peripheral artery disease, can affect your body’s ability to heal. This can lead to chronic, non-healing wounds — those that do not heal within 30 days or respond to treatment.
These types of wounds require specialized care to heal properly and prevent complications.
