Supplements for faster wound healing

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for trusting HealthcareMagic

Supplements containing vitamin A,C, B complex and Zinc can help the healing process and formation of healthy scar tissue.
If you are diabetic, stringent control of blood sugar and taking antidiabetic medications as prescribed are also very important in proper wound healing.
