What is Castor Oil Peru Balsam Trypsin
Castor oil peru balsam trypsin products are prescription only topicals used in wound care management.
The products relieve pain and promote healing; debride eschar and necrotic tissue physiologically; stimulate the vascular bed; improve epithelization by reducing premature epithelial desiccation and cornification; and reduce odor from malodorous necrotic wounds.
Labeled indications for these products include: sunburn, varicose ulcers, dehiscent wounds, decubital ulcers, and debriding of eschar.
Topical application can be helpful to prevent the deterioration of Stage I ulcers and to promote tissue granulation in deeper chronic ulcers (i.e., Stages II, III, IV).
Aerosol, gel, and ointment formulations containing the same ratio of castor oil, peru balsam, and trypsin are available; each claim therapeutic and application advantages.
Castor oil peru balsam trypsin products have been in general use in the U.S. for decades.
