    Slow Wound Healing

    I have a tendency to heal very slowly after receiving a wound (cut, scrapes, etc). This isn't usually much of a problem unless the wound is in an exposed area. Currently I have a 1/2 inch in diameter abrasion on my palm that has taken several layers of skin off. The wound is healing but very slowly (its been about 2 months now). Is there any medication that might speed the healing process?

    Have you tried applying an antibiotic cream such as neosporin or bacitracin? Something else to try is bag balm. When I got a tattoo a few years ago the guy gave me a little container of it to help the "wound" heal.
