impact of mango/papaya/kiwi on wounds

My husband had surgery (skin from his neck transplanted to his head after a basal cancer op). The wound is still a bit runny after 3 months (though the area is reducing in circumference). We eat a lot of tropical fruits such as, mango, papaya and kiwi. Could this affect the scabbing and healing?

This should not have any effect on the wound. I suggest you see a wound specialist who can properly assess the wound and take appropriate measures. This is now a chronic wound and may also need hyperbaric oxygen therapy to heal.
