Ozonol Plain Ointment is a topical medication used for wound healing and skin protection. It can also help to reduce pain and inflammation associated with the wound.
Ozonol contains phenol and zinc oxide, which have antiseptic and astringent properties. Phenol helps to kill bacteria and other microbes that may be present in a wound, while zinc oxide helps to protect the skin and promote healing. The ointment works by creating a barrier over the wound, protecting it from further damage and infection while also promoting healing.
Use and Dosage
Ozonol Plain Ointment should be applied to the affected area as needed, up to three times a day. Clean and dry the affected area before applying the ointment.
