Bad Sores: Top Podiatrist Recommends this Product

I recently sent a diabetic patient to a top wound specialist for an opinion. His recommendation to her was to use Winvivo Healing Balm. She definitely looked a lot better in the three wounds I had been trying to help her with. It can be used for superficial or deep wounds. It should not be used in the face of a possible infection. I believe the product has some great potential, but it is always trying to find out who it is beneficial for.

Wound in a diabetic after I scraped the callus and dead tissue away (called debridement). Careful debridement is always the number one treatment for these injuries/sores.
