Abstract

A new hypoallergic formula of propolis in dressings was evaluated against the standard formula. Patients (229) with wounds of diferent types that required ambulatory care were included. The new formula presented the same therapeutic action than the standard one with a notorious disminution of signs of local intolerance (1,8% vs. 18%)

The therapeutics properties of propolis were demostrated: anti-inflamatory, anti-microbian and stimulant of wound healing by a faster grow and initiation of granulation tissue. Other properties comprobated were the analgesic effect mainly in burns, the easier handling of the ambulatory patient and the posibility of avoid hurting the granulation tissue.

The wounds and burn were completed healed in an average of 11 days, the septic wounds en 17,5 days, and a complete reparation in the 67% of the ulcers in 36 days.

In this paper a methodology for the use of this dressing is described, pointing the importance of acomplishing it by the medical personnel.
