It is released and exerts a continuous bactericidal action on the ulcer surface and bacteria adsorbed to this drug.

It has the function of absorbing, adsorbing and purifying.



After cleansing the ulcer surface, apply this medicine to the affected area in a thickness of about 3 mm once a day. (Apply 3g per 4cm diameter as a guide).

For heavy exudate, apply twice daily.
