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
