If you have a wound, it’s only natural that you want it to heal quickly. Unfortunately, not all wounds heal as quickly as we’d like. There could be complications and infections. In addition to this, your day-to-day life could also impact how fast your wound heals.
Don’t worry, this article will show you how you too can make your wound heal faster. Please note, the tips you can find below are suggestions. If you’re worried, you should speak to your doctor.
Use an Antibacterial Ointment
You can typically buy antibacterial ointments from your local pharmacy. Sold over-the-counter, these ointments can help wounds to heal quicker.
Please ask your pharmacist about ointments such as these. They may recommend different ointments for different wounds. Always use the ointments as instructed. This will help you to heal a little faster.
Let Garlic Help
Did you know that garlic can help wounds to heal? Some people take garlic as a capsule every day. Other people put garlic in their meals every day. Ointments that contain around 30% garlic can help tissue to repair slightly quicker than it would have done otherwise.
There is unlikely to be a noticeable difference right away. However, you could find that your wound heals sooner than you or your doctor predicted.
If you do not want to use a garlic ointment, adding garlic to at least one meal a day could help. You don’t need to eat a lot of garlic, a clove should be enough.
Garlic is very good at helping your body to fight infection. It’s also good for your heart, so taking or eating can prove to be very beneficial.
Consider Other Therapies
There are many other therapies such as PRP therapy that could help you. If you need your wound to heal quickly, it’s worth exploring these therapies. Some have been proven to make a real difference to wound-healing.
Electric stimulation wound therapy is another healing method that can help. It works by disrupting the body’s electrical current by providing another current. This is thought to accelerate the healing process.
Change the Dressings as Instructed
If you have been shown how to change the dressings on your wounds, please do exactly as you have been shown. You might be tempted to change the dressings a little less often. However, this can cause an infection which could slow down the healing process.
If you’re not sure how to change your dressings, please speak to a healthcare professional.

This is why you should always follow any instructions that your healthcare professional gave you. With a little bit of work, you too could find that your wound is getting better every day.
