Topical wound agents are medical preparations used to treat dermatological injuries. Topical wound agents are mainly formulated into emulsions, creams, oils, spray and others. A wide variety of agents are used for the management of both acute and chronic wounds. Topical wound agents are mainly used for controlling inflammation, infection and pain. NSAIDs & Analgesics were used to treat inflammation & pain. However, wound healing is a complex progress and is affected by both intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Infection delays the healing process and increases the risk of infections. To control the infection, mainly disinfectants are used and they are active against disease-causing microorganisms and include antiseptics and antibiotics. Antiseptics are broad-spectrum antimicrobials used to treat intact skin or open wounds. Antibiotics are agents that kill or inhibit the growth of microorganisms and are used against specific cells (narrow broad spectrum). Antibiotics are more susceptible to bacterial resistance and require a continuous change in treatment regimen. Topical antibiotics are more advantageous than systemic antibiotics due to fewer side effects and limited dosage errors.
