New Jersey’s Top Wound Care Program
The human body knows how to heal a wound on its own. That’s why most cuts and scrapes go away within a few days. So if a wound takes a long time to heal, it could be a sign that something is wrong. It might be infected or otherwise require special treatment. If that’s the case, visit the wound care specialists at ID Care.

Does My Wound Need Treatment?
The doctors at ID Care treat all types of wounds, both big and small. If you’re not sure if you should come into the office, always err on the side of caution. In general, any wound that is hard to heal or shows signs of infection should be seen by a qualified expert. That includes everything from small scrapes to ulcers to skin grafts. Common indicators that you should seek medical treatment for a cut, scratch, scrape, or puncture include:
- Pus leaking from the wound
- Blue or dark discoloration
- Unusual odor coming from the wound
- Consistent pain
- Unusually warm or hot to the touch
- Hasn’t healed in over 30 days
Why Wound Care Matters
Wound treatment isn’t always as simple as putting on a bandage. An open wound leaves you vulnerable to potentially dangerous bacteria. When bacteria gets inside, it can cause skin cells and soft tissue to die (necrotize). If that happens, a small cut can quickly turn into a serious issue and even result in amputation and life-threatening complications.
Further, not all wounds are the same. Large, deep, and dirty wounds require specialized treatment to heal properly. And some wounds, like ulcers, may be caused by other issues, such as lack of blood supply or oxygen. For individuals with low immune health, diabetes, and circulatory conditions, getting treated by wound specialists is even more important.
