Everyone gets a wound once in a while, but it’s important to keep a vigilant eye on them and on overall health, said Kelly Byrd-Jenkins, the director of wound care at Peterson Health.

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure — prevention is the key,” Byrd-Jenkins said. “Taking really good care of yourself and routine care by your primary care doctor is big, and exercise and good nutrition.”
