Is Vaseline good for healing wounds

Answered By: Edward Gray Date: created: Jan 28 2022

To help the injured skin heal, use petroleum jelly to keep the wound moist.

Petroleum jelly prevents the wound from drying out and forming a scab; wounds with scabs take longer to heal.

This will also help prevent a scar from getting too large, deep or itchy..

What do dermatologists recommend instead of Neosporin

Answered By: Dominic Jenkins Date: created: Aug 27 2022

When the skin is open, it is more prone to becoming sensitized to an allergen, so even if the patient wasn’t allergic to neomycin previously, an allergy can develop late in life after prolonged exposure to Neosporin. For this reason, we often recommend Polysporin.

Wounds heal faster if they are kept warm. Try to be quick when changing dressings. Exposing a wound to the open air can drop its temperature and may slow healing for a few hours. Don’t use antiseptic creams, washes or sprays on a chronic wound.
