ABSTRACT
There is general agreement that topical therapy for stasis ulcers produces far more instances of sensitization than from any other condition. One-half percent silver nitrate in Aquaphor, paraben-free corticosteroid creams such as Hytone cream (Dermik) and Valisone cream (Schering), most corticosteroid ointments, and Ilotycin ointment are the safest effective topical medications. Unna paste bandage may contain paraben preservatives or dichlorophene (G-4) which can readily produce sensitization.
