An Antiseptic Drug For Wound Care.?
Hello Doctor, I want to ask if
Hello Violla Tjoa, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
Prontosan is one drug that contains the active drug PHMB (Polyhexamethylene biguanide). PHMB is a drug that functions as an antiseptic (a drug that aims to kill bacteria) that is often used in some products such as wound care drugs, contact lens cleaning fluid, cleaning fluid before surgery, and also swimming pool cleaners.
Various studies have been conducted on the effectiveness of the use of PHMB in wound care, and these results indicate that the use of drugs containing PHMB greatly helps reduce the rate of infection of germs in wounds.
Therefore, regarding your question, the drug that contains PHMB is safe to use as a wound care medication because the drug aims to prevent bacterial infections in the wound during the method of its use in accordance with the method of use recommended by your doctor. In addition, consider also ways to clean wounds that are good and right, such as keeping wounds clean and dry, not exposed to water for some time and only use medicines given by doctors.
I hope this helps.
