Zinc

Zinc is a healing nutrient where it used to help with wound care. If you have skin issues such as ulcers or recurring wounds, rashes, etc then zinc will help you. Zinc is also available as a topical cream but taking foods with zinc or supplement will help you to heal from the inside out. Zinc also helps with diaper rash and many diaper rash creams include this as an active ingredient.

When your body lacks zinc the side effects include loss of appetite, skin lesions, feeling fatigued, bad taste in your mouth, weight loss and more.
