Topical debriding agents
A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.
Topical debriding agents are chemicals that are used locally to clean an open wound by removing foreign material and dead tissue, so that the wound heals without increased risk of infection. This makes the healing faster.
