Before using Santyl ointment, consider the following:
Santyl Ointment has common side effects, such as pain or a burning feeling in the affected area may occur. Temporary redness/irritation may also occur in the skin around the affected area. To avoid redness/irritation in the surrounding skin, apply the ointment only to the affected area.
Treating burns and skin ulcers by breaking up and removing dead skin and tissue may rarely increase the risk of serious infection (sepsis). Tell your doctor immediately if you notice any symptoms of serious infection, including fever/chills, fast breathing (hyperventilation), fast heartbeat, warm skin, and weakness.
A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, get medical help immediately if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, or trouble breathing.
Contact your doctor or pharmacist if you notice other effects not listed above.
How long should you have to use Santyl ointment?
Continue using Santyl ointment as long as you do not have side effects and it's helping your skin condition. Usually, your provider will stop treatment when your skin wound has healed, all of the unhealthy tissue has been completely removed, and new, healthy skin has grown in its place.
Will your healthy skin become damaged if you accidentally get Santyl ointment?
Santyl doesn't affect the collagen in healthy tissue. However, you might get some redness in healthy skin exposed to Santyl ointment, so you should be careful only to use the ointment in the affected area.
What side effects can Santyl ointment cause?
Less serious side effects may be more likely, and you may have none.
