DermaWound® Venous Stasis Ulcer and Burn Formula
When Nothing Else Works!
(Please go to the Application and Instruction page for in-depth directions and faq’s after reading everything below.)
If you have a “normal” Venous Stasis Ulcer of short duration that is not over 2 inches in diameter and does not show signs of a Venous Stasis “Rash”, etc.; you can skip the Venous Stasis Relief Spray (VSRS) pre-treatment step described in the next paragraph and go straight to the DermaWound® Venous Stasis (VS) Ulcer & Burn Care Formula presented below it.
(Thermal and Radiation Burn Instructions are towards the end, below Venous Stasis Instructions.)
Note: If you have a weeping/swollen/obese red leg that looks like the skin around the wound is getting ready to break down and expand and you FIRST use the DermaWound® Venous Stasis (VS) wound care formula presented on this page; you run the risk of excessively debriding the affected leg beyond the wound itself, as it is already predisposed to breakdown and expansion. Using the Venous Stasis Relief Spray (VSRS) BEFORE introducing the DermaWound® Venous Stasis (VS) Formula will calm down the area, reducing swelling and discoloration around the existing wound and make it less likely to breakdown sensitive, red, blistered, weeping and non-ulcerated wound areas beyond their existing borders, once treatment begins using the DermaWound® Venous Stasis (VS) formula for ulcers and wounds.

PLEASE READ EVERYTHING BELOW:
No one in the world really wants to take on any of these ulcers, but we will. We have found over the years there are similarities in their presentation, symptoms and general outcomes – based on a few facts that appear to be constant.
If the wound/ulcer is on the bottom or side of the toe, foot, ankle or leg and is weight bearing during the day (as are ALL Venous Stasis Ulcers), DermaWound® VS should be applied only at night when “down” for the evening (covered with a Regular Gauze Pad/Sponge) and removed in the morning to avoid unnecessary agitation while active or working. The wound site should then be covered during the day or while active, with a Bacitracin, Polysporin, Vaseline or Triple Antibiotic type of product (avoid Neosporin or Silvadene) and a Non-Stick Gauze Pad/Sponge to maintain a moist environment until the DermaWound® is reapplied at night or when not active.Believe it or not, after following this algorithm for over 24 years, we know from experience that if you are active and your wound is on the bottom or side of the toe, foot, ankle or leg – you will heal faster if you only use it at night or when down, rather than trying to use it 24/7!
In General: the older the Venous Stasis type ulcer; the more complicated the history of the legs or ankles; and the heavier the client – the longer it will take to heal.Also, the wound may get larger before it starts to heal from the outside in; but will become shallower at the same time.DermaWound® has to first remove all non-viable tissue and reduce edema to begin the healing process – and in Venous Stasis wounds, that usually includes some infected surrounding tissue. This is unfortunately the nature of the hardest wound in the world to heal.If a Venous Stasis Rash or a great deal of leg edema and weeping are present, one must consider use of our Venous Stasis Relief Spray initially. The more recent ulcer in a non-obese individual with non-complicated history will behave more like the average chronic wound.
If you have a Venous Stasis type ulcer that is larger than the size of an adult hand and you have had it a number of years (or more than one), expect it to get a bit bigger, yet shallower, in the beginning. (NOTE: You will most likely need to start using our Venous Stasis Relief Spray FIRST if you have large ulcer greater than 2 inches in circumference or if it wraps around your leg.) Expect it to drain (length of time averages between 2-6 weeks), while the body attempts to flush out the deeply embedded infection. Once it stops draining, it will be relatively flat, and will then start to slowly close from the outside in. How long it takes to heal is directly related to the age and size of the wound as well as the client’s weight.
Again, if you have an ulcer that wraps around your leg or ankle you will need to start using our Venous Stasis Relief Spray FIRST, especially if you have what is described as a Venous Stasis “Rash” accompanying your ulcer/wound.
If you are a Vascular Surgeon, DermaWound® VS Ulcer and Burn Formula will clean, debride and help heal these ulcers so surgery, angioplasty or ablation may be performed to improve blood flow and/or reduce venous pooling, if deemed necessary.
ONLY USE: DermaWound® Venous Stasis (VS) Ulcer and Burn Formula AFTER The Acute Stages of a Burn (thermal or radiation injury).
DO NOT use the Original Formula for any burn ulcers – as it will be too strong and is not the right tool for this type of job.
1. If you are burned, you need to let the area calm down first – before the application of DermaWound® VS.
2. If there are blisters, apply DermaWound® VS AFTER the blisters break.
3. We suggest using Xeroform Petrolatum impregnated gauze in the acute phase of any burn until the area starts to dry and eschar/scabs start to form.
Again, only start application of DermaWound® VS after the acute phase of any burn.
4. The area may become “goopy” with exudates – do not wipe that off. Whatever needs to come off will come off by sticking to the gauze pad during the course of a normal dressing change.
5. Keep putting DermaWound® VS on the affected area twice a day (BID) using an occlusive dressing.
6. If application of DermaWound® VS is painful, stop using it until it’s not.
7. If the bandage sticks, and it most likely will, apply water to the gauze for 5 minutes to allow it to
loosen (you may shower – and again, do not actively clean the burned area).
8. Dead skin will slough off attached to the gauze as it is auto-debriding.
9. Natural areas of skin “islands” will start to develop even over large areas of tissue loss; thereby eliminating the need for skin grafts. VERY large areas of tissue loss will require temporary coverage of a skin substitute to prevent dehydration and shock.
10. Rinse affected area(s) with cool water; pat dry. Let area air dry for 5 minutes (take pictures at the end of 5 minutes) and redress.
11. Try to keep the affected area out of direct sunlight until your natural color starts to return (it may take several months to one year depending on the severity and extent of the burn injury).
