A New Wound Closure--Protein

Over human history, thousands of preparations and treatments have been developed to assist in wound repair.

Collagen itself has long been considered a favorite material for wound treatment because it is inexpensive, easily prepared and can be readily shaped to fit the wound site. Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body, and in skin, it's about 60 percent of your total protein.

The problem though is that this is an expensive solution and will cost over $100 to treat the wound. In the meantime I have had wonderful experience with Duoderm dressing, and I used it in my residency days over 20 years ago. It is great for skin abrasions and burns.

Please also remember that your body needs optimum nutrition to heal from wounds.
