Chilly waters off the coast of Iceland have yielded an unlikely tool for healing humans’ tough-to-treat wounds: the skins of wild cod. After it’s cleaned, doctors can apply the fish skin to troublesome chronic wounds to ease pain and encourage human skin to heal underneath, according to Kerecis, an Icelandic company that makes several fish skin products and sells them across Europe, the United States, and Asia.

“The skin of the fish, once scales are removed, is strikingly similar to human skin on a microscopic level,” Dr. Lee Rogers, a podiatrist who has used the product on diabetic patients’ wounds said in a phone interview with McClatchy. One natural feature that makes cod skin special is its abundant Omega3 fatty acids, which help fight inflammation that might otherwise slow — or stop — the healing process, according to Rogers.
