Repair the damage to your skin and other soft tissues by caring for affected areas and focusing on your overall health. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.
  • Deal with deficiencies

    Stick to a healthy diet and take a multivitamin to prevent deficiencies that can slow wound healing

  • Apply anti-biotic ointments

    Promote wound healing with topical anti-biotics, such as bacitracin, either alone or in combination with neosporin and polymyxin B (Neosporin, Polysporin)

  • Get support from vitamin C

    Take at least 1,000 mg a day of vitamin C to promote connective tissue repair

  • Try on topicals

    Apply an ointment containing zinc, chondroitin sulphate, and/or gotu kola to speed healing of skin wounds

  • Discover the benefits of bromelain

    To reduce swelling and speed the healing time for surgical wounds and soft tissue injuries, take a few hundred milligrams a day of this pineapple-derived enzyme during the first a few days after surgery or injury

  • Ask about commonly prescribed topical anti-biotics used to treat infection and help with healing, such as metronidazole (MetroGel) and mupirocin (Bactroban)
