The cut was healing very slowly, and getting red around the edges and I really had to start babying it, just to keep it from getting worse.
Cuts such as these when they get submersed, the scab gets all white and mushy and can so easily peel off, so one needs to actually dry it out, bandageless for several hours and hope it does not get contaminated or abraded in that time.
Sprinkling some of this antibiotic powder seems to nearly instantly harden up the scab by drying it out, and one can bandage it without it turning all mushy underneath like gel type antibiotics seem to do.
Anyway shortly after receiving this product, the cut was sealed over and healthy looking. Any active watersports person has had a Sea ulcer develop or just have a small cut take forever to heal, especially in the tropics. Like infected bug bites or reef rash. This stuff is like gold in such a climate.
It seems I am getting a lot of smaller shallower cuts that I usually wouldn't bother with, and only recently noticed them now because they were getting infected. Now, I force some of this powder into the cut and pretty much forget about it. Next morning it is just a cut, not a red rimmed itchy cut which I can squeeze pus out of, and if I do forget or not notice such a cut, and wake up to a festering cut, I squeeze it, and force some powder into it and forget about it.
Honestly I think we all have been disserviced by creme and gel antibiotic ointments, and feel it is a crime that so very few pharmacies carry this powder, and pharmacists eyes glaze over when asked about it.
Be sure to buy a bottle with a distant expiration date. A little goes a long way, and I find that I often toss out a quarter of the bottle when it expires.
