Wounds

Most skin wounds heal naturally and relatively quickly, but severe or infected wounds may take longer to resolve. Circulatory problems may also delay wound healing.

Symptoms

Wound may be open, exposing the tissue underneath, or a scab may be present on the skin surface. Healing occurs from the outer edges inwards, and the edges of the wound may be pink, shiny and itchy as the healing takes place. Wounds that are red, swollen, hot or discharging pus or other liquid may be infected. 

Causes

Wounds occur from trauma to the skin, such as a burn, injury or fall, and may also be the result of surgical incisions. Bed sores and pressure ulcers occur during periods of immobility, and are the result of restricted blood flow to the affected region. Wounds that are slow to heal are more common in people with compromised circulation, for example smokers, elderly people, and people with varicose veins or diabetes. 

Nutritional & Herbal Solutions

Zinc is involved in wound healing and is important for the health and integrity of the skin, helping to maintain its elasticity. Vitamin A is also important for skin health. Cod and halibut liver oils are naturally rich sources of vitamin A. Vitamins C and E are powerful antioxidants that help maintain healthy blood vessels and circulation. In particular, vitamin C plays an important role in the production of collagen, and helps to maintain the integrity of the skin. 

Bioflavonoids enhance the absorption and utilisation of vitamin C, and also have their own roles in the maintenance and integrity of the blood vessels. 

Taking grape seed extract may help to improve the health of the capillaries and other blood vessels, improving peripheral circulation and encouraging healing. Bilberry and ginkgo have similar properties. 

Garlic has potent antibiotic and immune-boosting properties, and has traditionally been used to promote resistance and fight skin infections. Look for a product containing the equivalent of 3 g of fresh garlic bulb. Parsley is sometimes taken at the same time to reduce the odour of garlic. 

Pierce a vitamin E capsule, and massage the oil into the scar once the wound has sealed over.

Diet & Lifestyle advice

Wounds that are slow to heal, or arise from minimal trauma to the tissue may be indicative of underlying disease, and require medical investigation. Ulcers and other wounds that are slow to heal may be symptomatic of diabetes.

Some people with diabetes experience damage to the nerves of their feet, making them insensitive to pain; consult your doctor urgently if you experience a wound or ulcer that is not painful.  If you have diabetes, follow your doctor or other healthcare professional's recommendations with regards to diet, exercise, supplement and medication use in order to maintain good blood sugar control and circulation. Ensure any wounds on the legs and feet are tended to quickly and appropriately; if necessary ask your healthcare professional to arrange for the dressings to be changed for you.Ensure your diet contains generous helpings of fresh foods that are rich in vitamin C and flavonoids, including citrus fruit, berries, and onions.

Herbalists also recommend spicy foods such as ginger and cayenne pepper to promote peripheral circulation. Apply tea tree oil to bacterial or fungal infections, diluting it first to avoid stinging or further irritating the infected tissue.

Don't smoke - aside from other detrimental effects, it promotes free radical damage and further exacerbates circulatory problems. 

If symptoms persist consult your healthcare professional. Information provided is of a general nature and should not replace that of your healthcare professional.
