In brief: Simply complex

There are many factors that allow our bodies to heal and a healthy 31 year old should heal any open wounds quickly.
When a wound fails to heal, there can be many causes ranging from using medications that prevent healing to other factors such as poor nutrition, circulation, ongoing stress, pressure on the site, etc. A woundcare specialist is trained to look at the many factors and get you healed.
