Infection is the most frequent complication associated with
an ulcer of the foot or leg. Bacterial infection simply
prevents the ulcer from healing. Some patients have endured
these non-healing wounds for two or three decades.
It's a devastating lifestyle. The pain is constant and the
odor horrific. These patients live with both the pain and
decaying stench 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Many for
the greater part of their lives.
The degree of ulceration is oftentimes exacerbated by a
general neglect of the wound that can be the result of poverty,
little to no education, inability to access medical care
and poor nutrition. Compounding this is the fact that invading
bacteria can grow resistant in reaction to antibiotics or
topical antiseptics that are used to treat the ulcer.
Seldom will conventional antiseptics kill the all the bacteria.
To the contrary, many antiseptics actually end up damaging
the healthy tissue surrounding the ulcer.
It is a real dilemma since most antispetics used in an attempt
to reduce the wound's microbial load may end up causing even
greater harm to the patients' healthy tissue.
Within a few weeks after first treating patients with the
physicians begin to see healing in decades-old ulcers that
was previously unheard of.
The photos below graphically illustrate the significant
results achieved on these ulcers when treated with a Microcyn® Technology-based
beauty of the Microcyn® Technology
is that patients, once finished with the physician's treatment,
can self administer home treatment on their own, cleansing
and treating their ulcer with Microcyn® Technology
and then bandaging. This is convenient and economical for
patients since it reduced the number of clinic appointments
NOTE: Microcyn® does
not have U.S. FDA clearance for claims other than to moisten,
lubricate, cleanse and debride wounds.
