What are Skin Tears?

Skin tears are acute wounds that often look similar to an abrasion (LINK) or a laceration (LINK). While skin tears typically happen suddenly and heal as expected, they can also become complicated, chronic wounds that have trouble healing and cause our patients grief. If you believe you have a skin tear that's not healing properly and are interested in finding a tailored solution for you, we encourage you to Contact us and schedule your private consultation with one of our medical team members at your earliest convenience. They'll be happy to sit down with you in the comfort of your own home at a time that's flexible with your schedule and provide you with a personalized treatment plan for your skin tears.

How Do I Know if I Have a Skin Tear?

Common symptoms of skin tears that many of our patients find they experience include:

  • The top layer of skin separating from the under layers of skin
  • Many layers of skin separating from the deeper layers of tissues

What Causes Skin Tears?

Skin tears can either be caused by hitting something with blunt force, scraping or cutting the skin, or rubbing the skin against a surface with intense friction. Patients who are at the highest risk of developing a skin tear are older patients with a history of falls, chronic illness, malnutrition, dry skin, or general health problems. If you find your skin tear is causing a fever, foul odor, excess redness, or worsening pain, we encourage you to call our medical experts for treatment as soon as possible, as these are common signs of an infection.
