What is Zinc Oxide?

Zinc is a trace element very abundant in the body. While it is known that zinc deficiency can cause delayed wound healing, the actual role of zinc in wound healing was not known. A number of experimental studies and clinical trials have been conducted using zinc. Results showed that topical zinc oxide had increased wound healing, increased re-epithelialization, decreased rates of infection, and decreased rates of deterioration of ulcers. Topical zinc oxide has been shown to improve the rate of wound healing in patients, regardless of their zinc status. Oral zinc supplementation in zinc-deficient patients did not have the same effect.

What have studies shown?

The animal studies reviewed showed that zinc sulfate did not enhance wound healing, but delayed it. One of the major roles for zinc in wound healing was found that zinc oxide enhances the ability of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) to enzymatically break down collagen fragments. There are few clinical studies, but they have all shown a positive benefit for topical zinc oxide, and of interest, especially when used for debridement in burns.
