Slow-healing or nonhealing wounds

Self-management

Practicing healthy lifestyle habits can speed up the healing process and prevent complications. While dealing with a slow-healing or nonhealing wound, make it a priority to eat a healthy diet high in protein, which is important for repairing tissues and skin. It helps if you get regular exercise. However, talk with your medical provider if you have a foot ulcer since you’ll usually need to stay off your feet as the wound heals.
