DESCRIPTION AND USE
Treatment of infected wounds and minor skin infections - boils, infected nails, chicken pox sores, tinea and other fungal and bacterial infections.
Apply using cotton bud, cotton wool or gauze as required. Sufficient ointment should be applied to maintain microbicidal activity in the presence of blood, pus, serum or mucosal secretions. Treated areas may be bandaged. Colour outlines the treated area and activity so as the colour fades more ointment should be applied. Minor Burns: Where skin is reddened or unbroken, apply liberally to the affected area. Do not use on extensive burn areas.Blisters: For broken and unbroken blisters apply ointment liberally to the affected area. Chicken Pox Sores: Apply twice daily to the affected area until infection clears in order to minimise secondary infection and scarring. Boils: Cover the entire boil area twice a day until the infection clears.
