This medication is a gauze dressing impregnated with the antibiotic framycetin sulfate. Framycetin sulfate belongs to a group of medications known as antibiotics. It is used to treat infected or potentially infected burns, wounds, ulcers, and skin grafts.
A single framycetin dressing is applied directly to the wound and covered with an appropriate dressing. If the wound is weeping, the dressing should be changed at least once daily. Cut the dressing to the size of the ulcer to decrease the risk of irritation and to avoid contact with healthy skin.
