Since so many years people have been trying to heal wounds. Ancient people used so many herbal products to heal wounds like ghee, honey, leaves of different trees, wine, milk, lint, etc. Even many herbal preparations are available today with combination of turmeric powder, aloe vera, karanj oil, etc. Nowadays there are so many varieties of dressing materials available. Contaminated and colonized wounds do not require antiseptics and antibiotics, only infected wounds need a use of antibiotics. There are many systemic and local causes for non healing of a wound. Proteinases, cytokines and growth factors have a significant role in the process of healing.
