External therapyThis section has been translated automatically.
For small ulcerations, external antiseptic or antibiotic therapy is sufficient. Sitting baths with disinfecting additives such as quinolinol (e.g. Chinosol 1:1000, R042 ), potassium permanganate (light pink) are helpful. In addition, brushing with disinfectant solutions such as Polyvidon-Iodine Solution R203 and ointment dressings with Polyvidon-Iodine Ointment (e.g. Braunovidone-Iodine) should be used. In case of accompanying intertrigo, brushing with drying aqueous disinfectant solutions (e.g. 0.5% methylrosanilinium chloride solution [gentian violet]) is indicated.
