My name is***** can I obtain Cicatrin powder? I live in Victoria BC and can get a prescription from my family doctor. I had great success in the past with Cicatrin with chronic wounds that failed to heal with ointments in moist environment.

This is Dr. David

cicatrin powder has been discontinued.

you should use nystatin powder or corn starch baby powder to help keep an area dry to help with wound healing.

MediHoney or Manuka Honey or Silvadine ointment can also help with wound healing issues.

seeing doctors and nurses at wound care clinics can help give you suggestions on agents to use to help with wound healing.

let me know if you have questions .
