  • ACTIVE INGREDIENTS

    Each gram contains Trypsin USP NLT 90 USP units, Balsam Peru 87.0 mg, Castor Oil USP/NF 788.0 mg.

    INACTIVE INGREDIENTS

    Safflower Oil, Aluminum Magnesium Hydroxide Stearate.

    ACTIONS

    Balsam Peru is an effective capillary bed stimulant used to increase circulation in the wound site area. Also, Balsam Peru has a mildly bactericidal action. Castor Oil is used to improve epithelialization by reducing premature epithelial desiccation and cornification. Also, it can act as a protective covering and aids in the reduction of pain. Trypsin is intended for debridement of eschar and other necrotic tissue. It appears that in many instances removal of wound debris strengthens humoral defense mechanisms sufficiently to retard proliferation of local pathogens.

    INDICATIONS

    To promote healing and the treatment of decubitus ulcers, varicose ulcers and dehiscent wounds.

    USES

    XENADERM® Ointment is easy to apply and quickly reduces odor frequently accompanying a decubitus ulcer. The wound may be left open or appropriate dressing applied. As a suggestion, keep in mind wounds heal poorly in the presence of hemoglobin or zinc deficiency. XENADERM® Ointment can relieve pain and promote healing.

    WARNING

    Do not apply to fresh arterial clots. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of reach of children. Use only as directed. When applied to a sensitive area, a temporary stinging sensation may be noted.
