Wound healing very slowly

Hi, I am 33 years old male, met with a road accident recearly. I got scrapes on both my palms, right knee & ankle. (Attached the photograph of right palm & ankle wound). My concern is that though it has been 3 weeks since the injury, my wounds are not healing fast. I am not diabetic which I got tested just 1 week before the accident. I have been diating since two months before the accident. I am worried very much what is causing my wounds to heal slowly. Kindly suggest what may be the problem & how this problem can be treated.

Hi there I understand your concern and anxiety... Your wound is will not heal untill the infection is cleared... You will require antibiotics to clear infection... Consult nearest surgeon for clinical examination and for specific treatment...with that have healthy proteinaceous food.
