Cicatrin was always only available with a doctor's prescription. However, it has been discontinued everywhere (years ago). When it was available, it was only to be used for a maximum of 7 days under a doctor's supervision. One of the drugs it contained has been associated with permanent ototoxicity.

Her doctor can also order a wound care nurse for your Mum to take care of sores when they do develop.
