Halo Alfina Kurniarista, thank you for asking with the HealthReplies.com team.


Long healing wounds occur when the healing process is hampered. This condition can be influenced by various things, including:

- Blood circulation and poor oxygen supply, such as having diabetes


- Infection of the wound


- Unhealthy lifestyles such as lack of consumption of nutritious food, smoking or drinking alcohol


- Older people tend to have longer wound healing


You can do the following things to help speed up wound healing:


- Perform wound cleansing properly and correctly


-Make a wound bandage to keep it clean and avoid bacteria.


- Apply an antibiotic cream or ointment to help keep the surface of the skin moist and prevent infection


- Keep the wound dry, try not to get exposed to water first


- Consumption of vitamin C, protein and iron to help wound healing


- Avoid smoking and alcoholic drinks


- Manage stress well


- Consumption of nutritious foods
