    It is called Verticyn or Microcyn. You need a prescription for it. I am not sure of the cost. You apply it by spraying it on the wound and then covering it. Keep the wound clean and the pressure off of it as much as possible. Also, make sure the diet is well balanced and high protein. Plenty of fluids are also important.

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.
