Open wounds are no fun. When the skin is broken, it’s very important to clean the area to protect against infection.

For minor wounds, after bleeding has subsided, you can wash the area with soap and water. If you have access to a sink or bath tub, gently run water over the area for a couple minutes to get rid of debris and germs.

If you have a more serious open wound, you may need medical attention. Go to the local clinic or hospital and have a doctor investigate the tissue damage and make recommendations regarding treatment.

Many people apply antibiotics to their wounds to help them heal. Be careful if you have allergies or sensitivities to certain medication(s)—you don’t want to end up making the wound worse.

Ideally, it’s a smart idea to cover the wound with a bandage daily, protecting it from exposure to things like dirt. Changing coverings over the wound on a daily basis is recommended.

Arginine Infusion, a health supplement from Sante Global, may aid in treating burn wounds. Research has shown that L-Arginine, a natural amino acid, may help accelerate wound healing and post-surgery recovery. In some cases, it has been found to reduce healing time of injuries as it quickens the repair time of damaged tissue.


Available as a powder you add to water and drink, Arginine Infusion comes in a tasty berry blend flavor. Besides assisting in wound healing, it has many other potential health benefits.
