Do wounds heal faster covered or uncovered?
Think back to your childhood at a point when you scraped your knee. You had two options: Clean it up and let it air out or place a bandage over it to stop the bleeding. Which recovery method was truly the most effective? Contrary to popular belief, giving a wound time to breathe without a dressing doesn't improve healing time. In fact, it may induce pain and even slow down the healing process. What happens when you leave a wound uncovered If we think far back to before the bandage was invented, men and women likely let their cuts and scrapes be if there wasn't a form of dressing available. They discovered that the ...

Some people start wearing a hat to hide hair loss, she says, which may lead observers to conclude it was the hat-wearing that triggered the baldness. That’s probably not the case. “I think the short answer is that [hat wearing] is pr...
