In brief: There are

Numerous wound care products and it depends largely on the size and depth of the wound, it's location and the person being applied to, ie a chronic wound in a diabetic, a pressure wound, venous ulceration or a burn, laceration, puncture, etc.
Need specific details to make any recommendations and give reasons.
