Metronidazole 0.75% cream can be use for malodorous wounds.
A doctor told me she used to crush up metronidazole tablets and sprinkled on the wounds. She asked if there was a compound we can make. First thing I thought of was – well we have Metrogel. However, I wasn’t sure what concentration was considered “effective” since I’ve never done it for this indication.
Turns out metronidazole 0.75% gel topical was used to treat malodorous wounds! Been studied with good effect.
