A wound is usually involving division of tissue or rupture of the skin, tissue and mucous membrane due to external force; accident, elective surgery or even burn. After the injury, the tissue will start its natural process of healing. Most wound would heal with simple action of keeping clean from infection. However, some wound will become chronic and difficult to heal. Here, the healing rate depends on both external and internal factors.
