Overview

Introduction

Wounsol Ointment is a combination medicine used in the treatment of wound infection. It works by stopping the growth of microorganisms and killing the existing ones that cause the infection.

Wounsol Ointment is for external use only. You should use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. This medicine should be used regularly to get the most benefit from it. Do not use more than you need as it will not clear your condition faster and some side effects may be increased. If your condition goes on for longer than four weeks or gets worse at any time, let your doctor know. The effects of medicine can be increased by keeping the affected area clean and dry, and washing hands before and after treating the infection.

Some of the common side effects include dry skin, skin irritation, redness or itching at the site of application. If the side effects bother you or do not go away, let your doctor know. Avoid direct contact with eyes, nose, or mouth. If accidental exposure occurs, rinse immediately with plenty of water.

It is not likely that other medicines you take by mouth or injection will affect the way it works but talk to your doctor before using it if you have used a similar medicine before and had an allergic reaction. This medicine should only be used if it is clearly needed during pregnancy.

How Wounsol Ointment works

Wounsol Ointment is a combination of three medicines: Ornidazole, Povidone Iodine and Sucralfate. Ornidazole is an antibiotic. It kills the bacteria and other microorganisms that cause infections by damaging the DNA. Povidone Iodine is an antiseptic. It slowly releases iodine which kills or prevents the growth of infectious microorganisms. Sucralfate is a protectant which covers the damaged tissue and protects it against injury to facilitate healing.
