Treatment principles

Moist wound healing theory, proposes that a balance must be struck between excessive wound fluid, particularly in chronic wounds which can cause maceration of the periwound skin destroying some of the beneficial processes occurring in the wound, and a wound surface exposed to air which then forms a dry, hard scab that can delay healing

Treatment Agents

Oral antibiotics

Topical antimicrobials: • Honey • Iodine • Chlorhexadine • Hydrogen peroxide
