Fertomcidina-U is an aqueous solution composed of bromo-iodine salt, salicylic acid and magnesium phosphate acid. Used in the topical treatment of infections, the preparation has a bactericidal and fungicidal action, besides exerting an anti-inflammatory and hemostatic effect. The product was tested in an observational study conducted by our unit. The study population included 85 subjects with various skin infections, the majority of which were primary and secondary pyodermitis. Treatment efficacy was evaluated against standard criteria (redness, swelling, heat, pain and dysfunction) at baseline assessment and then every 5-6 days for 3-4 weeks. Compliance with therapy as regarded ease of application and acceptable cosmesis was also assessed.
