Hi there wound care very essential in wound healing....Proteins are essential for rebuilding damaged skin, collagen and blood vessels...Lean meat, poultry, fish, soybeans and beans contain the most protein, followed by low-fat dairy products and eggs...vitamin C,zinc and vitamin A are essential in wound healing...add protein rich foods and healthy fats to diet for e.g..egg white...add fibre rich foods like green leafy veggies,carrots,Apple, etc. Add green tea to your diet .you have to eat more foods high in amino acids,calcium, zinc, iron, copper and magnesium...Regards.
