Autolyse ointment is used to remove dead tissue and thinning the pus in lesions such as ulcers, burns,bed sores, surgical wounds, cysts, and carbuncles. Autolyse ointment contains papain and urea.
Papain-urea ointment is a debriding agent. It works by helping the breakdown of dead skin and pus, which helps improve the recovery time of open wounds.
