Edema Skin Care
A Message From Dr. McCord
Healthy skin requires adequate circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids to deliver essential nutrients and remove metabolic waste. When you have impaired circulation, your skin can begin to suffer due to the lack of nutrients and the accumulation of lymphatic fluid and metabolic waste including free radicals. We have used a team approach utilizing nurses, pharmacists, and physicians in the preparation of this site with the hope that it provides valuable information to help you maintain healthy and viable skin and prevent serious skin-related complications of lymphedema and phlebolymphedema.
