In brief: Also zinc...
Zinc has also been shown to help with wound healing - especially in older populations whose intake of the mineral is inadequate.

In brief: Vitamins and wounds
There is no proof that vitamin supplements help heal wounds.
Eating a balanced diet with healthy choices is the best way to get your nutrients.

In brief: Yes
Vitamin a is required for skin and bone formation, cellular and immune function.
Vitamin c is necessary for collagen formation, proper immune function, and as a tissue antioxidant. Vitamin e is the major lipid-soluble antioxidant in the skin; however, the effect of vitamin E on surgical wounds is inconclusive.
