Hi! Can I use Santyl on my face to remove dark skin and on the lines of the face?
Santyl is a collagenese ointment that is normally used for debribedement, such as when someone has a wound that won't heal and has developed necrotic tissue.
Has your doctor told you to use it for these purposes?
Otherwise, I can only think that such use would be inappropriate and is likely to cause more harm than good.
You can learn more about it here:
I had a severe infection in my rectal area and the surgeon had to dig deep to clear out the affected tissue. I am left with a deep cavity which requires daily changing of a fistula, and wound care. The cavity seems to be narrowing. Santyl is used in wound care, but it's too expensive. Can you recommend a substitute?
Can Santyl be used on the face? I was washing my face with a washcloth and I have very sensitive skin and it removed about a quarter size of it until you can see the white of my skin. Now I have been using Vaseline and am just wondering if i could use Santyl for speedy healing?
