Long-Term Lymphedema Control

Reach your goals with help from knowledgeable lymphedema specialists. Learn how to manage lymphedema at home, and visit a DOHC clinic near you for check-ins as needed.

Wound Prevention

Certain conditions, such as diabetes or neuropathy, increase your risk for a chronic wound. You may have screenings for vascular (vein) problems or foot sores. Talk to our specialists about how to prevent problems.

Preventing Diabetic Foot Sores

If you have diabetes, prevent diabetic foot sores by participating in our foot care program. Depend on us to work with your primary care provider, podiatrist, and other members of your care team so the care you receive works well for you.

Self-Care at Home

Your provider will help you learn how to take care of the wound at home. To help the wound heal as quickly as possible:

  • Change your dressings and clean the wound in the way and on the schedule your provider recommends. Do not clean the wound with iodine or hydrogen peroxide.
  • These products can kill healthy cells and delay healing.
  • Cover your wound in the shower.
  • Eat a healthy diet.
  • If you smoke, stop. Smoking makes it harder for your body to heal. Get help from DOHC to quit.

Talk to Your Doctor

If you have slow healing wounds, cuts or scrapes.
