The plastic surgeon must treat wounds and wound infection resulting from extensive surface tissue injury of burns, ulcers, avulsions and abrasions. However, every effort should be made to prevent infection of the wound by applying a protective dressing that is non-adherent and of sufficiently fine mesh to prevent ingrowth of epithelial and capillary buds. In the general clinical use of dressings impregnated with nitrofurazone, only three reactions have occurred in over 500 cases.
