Anti-infective effects of sugar-vaseline mixture on leg ulcers
AbstractFifty patients affected of resistant leg ulcers where treated exclusively with a vaseline-glucose mixture in combination with an etiologic treatment. Neither additional topical, systemic anti-infective drugs nor surgical debridement were applied. The dressing turnover rate was 6-7 days. A first bacteriological sampling was followed by a second one (40 days mean), which showed 100% sterilized ulcers. A complete scaring was achieved in 46 (92%) on average of 109 days of apply. This efficient, low cost, painless and quick treatment could proposed as a first line option.
