My husband is a child diabetic...since 3 years old...he is now 57 years old.
I am here to tell you that my husbands horrible diabetic FOOT ULCERS are healing up beautifully...thought he was going to have to have his left foot amputated!
He wore a pair of moccasins all day and it was hot and he developed huge blisters
on both feet that popped and would not heal!
Our doctor is a foot specialist and was a Navy doctor for 8 years and found this amazing treatment there...this is what they use.
Here is what our doctor told us to buy "over the counter" :
It is called "Castellani Paint Modified" - First Aid Antiseptic Agent.
-Note: ONLY for EXTERNAL ulcers...do NOT take solution internally!
Not every pharmacy has it, so shop around, and it is about $30.
But you can buy it over the counter!!! No prescription needed.
Here is how I use it: Only use Q-TIPS.
1. Put the Q-tip into the bottle and hold it there for a few seconds.
2. Then just paint the "Castellani" all over the ulcerated area. Mke sure to cover well.
3. Let it dry thoroughly. NO need to add bandages or dressings at all or any other medications or ointment...ALL YOU NEED IS THIS SOLUTION!
4. It does take awhile, but it dries out the ulcer and puts a PROTECTIVE layer over
the top of the ulcer while it heals from the inside.
5. As the ulcer starts to heal, you can take the Q-tip and hold it sideways and start rolling it over the ulcer and start putting pressure on it to see if it will
make any pus from the ulcer pop out. Sorry it sounds gross...but our doctor told me that it will help to excellerate the healing. And I found that he is right...it does.
We went to our doctor again yesterday, and he said that my husband's ulcers are healing nicely. He also mentioned that this solution has saved many many of his patients from amputations!
It is all external...so why not give it a try? Better than having an amputation!
This is definately the $30 a bottle. We are on our 2nd bottle...but he's almost healed now. And I will have the rest of the bottle for any future ulcer battles!
Just wanted to let all the diabetics out there know about this.
