Is this wound healing ok?

Looks OK to me. Presumably the redness is fading gradually?

Hmm. Having had cellulitis in a surgical incision, I would be keeping an eye on the redness - does it feel very warm to the touch? Other than that it seems to be doing well!

If the redness is hot to the touch, if it spreads, if it begins to swell or if you take a fever, get to your GP or other medical care as soon as possible for antibiotics.

Hypercal is a great remedy. You dilutw it and apply to open wounds.

Don't apply anything to a still-healing surgical or repaired wound without assessment in person from an HCP.
