Ichthopaste Bandage

ICHTHOPASTE Medicated Bandage 7.5CM x 6M is made of open woven cloth which is impregnated with a paste containing 6.32% Zinc Oxide BP and 2% Ichthammol BP.  The bandage has no elastic fibres and therefore does not stretch. ICHTHOPASTE may be used as a primary dressing over the wound site or skin condition and may be covered with an occlusive bandage, garment or compression therapy**.


ICHTHOPASTE provides topical treatment to aid the healing of leg ulcers and their associated skin conditions such as varicose eczema or hyperkeratosis. ICHTHOPASTE is also suitable for use in the treatment of chronic eczema and dermatitis.  The bandage provides a moist wound healing environment, helps to reduce skin irritation breaking the itch-scratch cycle, soothes and protects the skin.
