What liquid promotes wound healing? What is the right documentation of wound and dressing site?

In brief: Few liquids actually

Promote wound healing.
But there are some advantages to using a neosporin type cream. Also one can use certain silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) gels and seaweed extracts, but those are typically only obtained by prescription. Do not put hydrogen peroxide on a healing wound! only use it to initially clean a wound. It kills the tissue that was placed down to heal it. Unsure of your documentation question, be specific.

In brief: Depends on the wound

Really, there is no liquid that "promotes" wound healing.
However, depending on the wound, your physician will recommend anything from doing nothing to different dressing/ointments to aid it in its healing.
