    GJ, I remember reading one of your posts about vetericyn or something - do you know if puracyn is still using the microcyn 'technology'?
    Puracyn is no longer manufactured using the license for Microcyn Technology (a registered trademark). Puracyn is manufactured and distributed by Innovacyn. The Microcyn and MicrocynAH lines of products are manufactured and distributed by Sonoma Pharmaceuticals (formerly Oculus Innovative Sciences). These two lines of products use Microcyn Technology, which claims a long and stable shelf life over other similar products.

    Microcyn? Technology

    The Microcyn?Technology family of products consist of liquids and gels which contain highly stable small molecule oxychlorine compounds. One of these compounds, hypochlorous acid, is also produced by the human body’s immune system upon demand to eradicate foreign pathogens in the body.
    The unique chemistry imparted through the patented Microcyn? manufacturing system provides superior product stability. Standard electrochemical processes used in the manufacture of other hypochlorous acid-containing products, cannot come close to matching this stability.
    There are no known drug interactions or contraindications with Microcyn?-based products. Testing has demonstrated the gel and liquid products to be non-irritating, non-sensitizing and non-toxic. Microcyn?-based liquid products have been found to have no oral toxicity, cause no ocular irritation and are non-genotoxic.

    Damn it, I just found 3 more pressure sores on my feet...
    Hate to see you going through this "Mac." Do you have any idea what is causing these pressure sores on your feet? Where, on your feet, are these sores located? What can you do to eliminate what is causing the sores?

      Hello nurse, the pressure sore that was on my bottom is gone.
      It took 10 months to heal but it's gone.
      I didn't want to spam with another thread about my feet so I just continued with this one (It's old)- I am going to the wound care tomorrow – I will tell them to take a picture of the wound on my foot.

      The pressure sore was caused by new shoes and I didn't check my feet FOR a long time and that was a big mistake.
      My left foot has two small sores – one is on my heel and the other is on the left side of my foot.
      On my right foot it's underneath. I will post a picture tomorrow, just a warning it's pretty gross.
      I learned about vetericyn from you - do you think that microcynAH would heal the wound faster? - I will be bringing a bottle of pureacyn to the wound care so they can spray it on.

        I can't say if MicrocynAH would heal the wound faster. It is just that Microcyn Technology products have a more stable and longer shelf life and you are getting full benefit of the hypochlorous acid effect.

              My observation of the wound from the picture is that it is much deeper and filled with non-healthy tissue. In all likelihood, they may need to cut away that dead tissue. I would also encourage you to get worked up for osteomyelitis. Given the length of time that you have had this problem and the fact that it is not healing, there is a chance that you could have it. No wound will heal without treating that first.
              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.

                I only had this wound for about a month, maybe a month and a half - the 1st one was on my butt
