had hammertoe surgery on the 14th, dr said surgery site is very red, and swollen. he will watch it for 4 days.
how can i fight infection naturally untill the doc actually moves forward for certain if there is infection for sure.
are there vitamins or minerals i can load up on to fight infection?
Yes, vitamins and minerals are important to fighting off infections both bacterial and viral. Vitamins and minerals help to run your metabolic pathways. I would take a good quality miltivitamin and contains all the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and botanicals. I'm not going to suggest a particular one as there are so many. Just remember, to some extent you get what you pay for so don't buy a cheap generic brand. That's my best advice to you. Hope that helps. Hope your toe heals well.
