The Use Of Gentamicin Ointment To Treat Pus-filled Circumcision Scars?

k,rnDoc, I want to ask, can you use salticin ointment to speed up the drying of circumcision scars, right? My circumcision scars are a bit festering, maybe because I ride a motorbike to work.rnThank you.

Hello, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.


The drug contains gentamicin which is an antibiotic to fight germs around the skin locally in case of infection. The complaints you convey are due to an inflammatory process or an infection. Conditions that may happen to you:


1.    The wound healing process


The wound healing process is divided into 4 phases, namely hemostasis phase (stopping bleeding and blood clotting), inflammatory phase (inflammation phase involving white blood cells), granulation phase (formation of new body tissue), and remodeling phase (tissue repair process). The complaints you convey may be part of the inflammatory phase.


2.    Wound infection


If the wound care process is not clean, there is a high possibility of an infection process.


3.     Cellulitis


Inflammation of the skin and tissues under the skin which is often associated with an infectious process


You are advised to consult a doctor directly to get a complete picture of your health. Things you can temporarily do are to keep the wound clean, wear comfortable underwear so it doesn't press on the wound, change underwear if it's wet or damp, and can also take painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen.


Hope it is useful. Thanks.
