In brief: The "best" one

Is whatever your doctor recommends.
Different wound care products could fill a warehouse. They have different purposes for different types of wounds. A lot of this is just what the doctor likes to use. Ask a wound care specialist - most of these products are available to consumers and can be found locally or on the internet.
