Venelex Ointment Description
VENELEX™ OINTMENT contains Balsam Peru, Castor Oil USP, Glyceryl Monostearate and White Petrolatum.
VENELEX™ OINTMENT helps to deodorize and protectively cover pressure wounds (ulcers). VENELEX™ OINTMENT provides a moist wound environment. The moisturizing properties of VENELEX™ OINTMENT may also help in the prevention of cracking around the edges of sores.
VENELEX™ OINTMENT is a wound dressing for topical use in the management of chronic and acute wounds, and dermal ulcers including: pressure ulcers (Stage I-IV), venous stasis ulcers, diabetic ulcers, first and second degree burns, surgical wounds, traumatic wounds, superficial wounds, ulcers resulting from arterial insufficiency and grafted wound/donor sites.
VENELEX™ OINTMENT is contraindicated in persons who have shown hypersensitivity to Balsam Peru, Petrolatum or any of the other ingredients used in this ointment.
VENELEX™ OINTMENT is easy to apply and quickly reduces odors frequently accompanying a decubitus ulcer. The wound may be left open or appropriate dressing applied. Please note that wounds generally heal poorly in the presence of hemoglobin or zinc deficiency.
FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY. Do not apply to fresh arterial clots. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep this and all other medications out of reach of children. Keep tightly closed. Use only as directed by a physician. When applied to a sensitive area, a temporary stinging may occur.
Apply a thin film of VENELEX™ OINTMENT topically a minimum of twice daily or as often as necessary. Wound may be left unbandaged or appropriate dressing can be applied. To remove, wash gently with an appropriate wound cleanser.
