Cristalmina is one of those medications that is always worth having in the home. It is ideal for dealing with small home accidents.
What is Cristalmina?
Cristalmina is a topical antiseptic, that is, a medication for external use that is applied to the skin. It is used for disinfection and healing of small wounds.
Rubs, scrapes or small wounds leave the inner layers of the skin exposed, making us vulnerable to infectious agents. Cristalmina disinfects the area and helps the skin regenerate faster. This reduces the risk of scarring.
Advantages of Cristalmina
The main advantage of Cristalmina is that it can be used by all members of the home, from children to the elderly. On the other hand, it is highly valued because it has a fairly fast action (it only takes 15 seconds).
Application of Cristalmina
Cristalmina is a topical medication, which means it should never be ingested. It is most advisable to first clean the wound, running warm water and cleaning with neutral soap.
Cristalmina comes in several presentations, but the most popular is the aerosol. This is very practical, since there is no contact of the hands with the wound when applying the product. Something ideal in cases such as piercings.
Warnings and precautions
People who are hypersensitive or allergic to the active ingredient (chlorhexidine digluconate) should not use Cristalmina.
