What is Wound Ointment Widmer and when is it used?
The Wound Ointment Widmer has slightly bactericidal (germicidal) properties due to the silver and adsorptive (liquid absorbent) properties due to the white clay. It protects against infections and replaces the bandage for small wounds. Wound ointment Widmer is used for minor skin damage, minor injuries, minor abrasions and minor burns.
What precautions should be taken?
Large, heavily soiled and deep wounds as well as bite and stab wounds require medical treatment (risk of tetanus). If the size of a wound remains unchanged for some time, or if the wound does not heal within 10-14 days, a doctor's visit is also required. Likewise, if the edges of the wound are very red, the wound suddenly swells, is extremely painful, or the injury is accompanied by a fever (risk of blood poisoning).
When should Wound Ointment Widmer not be used?
If you are hypersensitive to any of the ingredients, you should not use Widmer Wound Ointment, nor should you use it for severe, open and deep wounds. Such injuries deserve medical treatment. Contact with the eyes should be avoided.
When should you be careful when using Widmer ointment?
If preparations for cleaning wounds containing protein-splitting enzymes are used at the same time, the silver contained in the Widmer wound ointment can reduce the effect of these enzymes.
