08 Oct 2018

The mythical hero Hercules for a long time could not cope with the Lernea hydra, because at the place of the severed head three immediately grew up. As you know, Hercules managed to make his second feat and win the same malignant amphibian. But the ability of the hydra to restore the lost, frankly, impressed. At first sight, in ordinary, non-mythical life, such miracles do not occur. But if we could, with the help of some magical gadget, see how the body repairs damaged tissue, in particular the skin, it would probably agree that it looks like a miracle. By the way, in the treatment of skin lesions, there is a mythology. We'll talk about this now.

Actovegin ointment and Actovegin gel

MYTH
Each wound, abrasion or cut is an open gate for infection. Therefore, cuts and abrasions should be treated as quickly and carefully as possible with iodine or alcohol, without missing a millimeter of the damaged area.


TRUE
If it is not a small surface abrasion, then use alcohol-containing solutions should be very carefully. Iodine, alcohol treat only the edges of the wound. The ingress of these funds to the wound surface further injures the tissues and causes a burn which will increase the number of dead cells and delay the normal healing process. Therefore, treat the wound better antiseptic, not causing burns - a solution of hydrogen peroxide or chlorhexidine. And then - in order to avoid re-infection of the wound and in order to speed up the healing process, it is useful to apply gel on the wound surface of Actovegin. It creates a breathable but insurmountable film on the wound and activates regenerative processes, stimulating blood circulation and improving the nutrition of tissues. And after the wound is delayed, you need to continue treatment with cream and ointment Actovegin - so that the skin does not form a coarse scar.


MYTH
Burns, incl. and solar, it is necessary to treat with alcohol or smear with oil.


TRUE
If the burnt skin is treated with alcohol, then a chemical burn is added to the thermal burn. As for oil, its use in the treatment of burns is not recommended for 2 reasons: oil forms a film on the surface of the burn which prevents the evaporation and cooling of the damaged area. In addition, the oil can not be attributed to sterile substances. Therefore, the probability of infection is high. To effectively treat burns, you can use Actovegin. With thermal burns with a wetting surface, Actovegin gel is suitable, with sunlight and thermal burns without wetting, help is provided by Actovegin cream. It has a light texture, it is easy to apply to damaged skin without causing additional pain. Cream Actovegin will accelerate skin regeneration, moisturize and soften irritated and inflamed skin.

MYTH
To heal skin damage, you can use natural remedies - plantain or yarrow, for example. And no "chemistry" is needed.

TRUE
Psyllium and yarrow, of course, can be used in marching conditions, if at hand there are no other effective means of help. But nevertheless it is necessary to consider, that such means can become a source of an infection. Therefore, it is better to use proven pharmacies in camping conditions: antiseptic and the means of the Actovegin line. This is not a "chemistry", but a set of natural factors that help to trigger natural metabolic processes. The main active substance is the deproteinized haemoderivat of the blood of young healthy calves. Included in the composition of drugs Actovegin substances improve skin nutrition, supplying cells of the affected tissue with oxygen, microelements and nutrients: amino acids and carbohydrate-lipid complexes, stimulate blood circulation.

MYTH
There is no point in spending money on various dosage forms of Actovegin. It is enough to buy either a gel, or a cream, or an ointment. After all, the active substance is the same everywhere.

TRUE
Actovegin is the only external preparation for 3-step therapy of wounds, abrasions, scratches and other superficial skin lesions. For each stage of healing is its Actovegin.

On a fresh wound with a wet antiseptic after separation, a 20% gel is applied. It covers the wound with a thin film, thereby reliably protects it from infection, and immediately starts the process of initial active healing. After 1-4 days, as soon as a fresh granular tissue (granulate) is formed in the wound, it is better to switch to 5% cream of Actovegin to accelerate the further healing. In the final phase of regeneration, for the full healing at the epithelization stage, the use of the Actovegin ointment is recommended. It is with this approach that the crusts will quickly disappear and the wound will heal without scars.


MYTH
If the drugs Actovegin contain the blood of calves, then these drugs need special storage conditions. And the shelf life of them, most likely, is small.

TRUE
Well, firstly, in the preparations Actovegin contains not blood, but deproteinized haemoderivat, containing only physiological substances - amino acids, oligopeptides, nucleosides, oligosaccharides and other useful trace elements. Due to this composition, Actovegin has antihypoxic, antioxidant and metabolic effects on damaged tissues. Secondly, all drugs Actovegin can be stored under normal conditions. They can be taken with them on a trip or on a summer residence. In this case, Actovegin has a long shelf life: the gel has 3 years, and the cream and ointment have 5 years.
