My home health nurse started using this on a decubitus ulcer on the back of my thigh after noticing the silver alginate used by the hospital was making things worse. Santyl has worked wonders with healing. I don't have any pain from it just great results. Highly recommend.

Like what it did but needed to be told to stop using this medicine when s ... Show Full Comment
