Topical Treatment for Chronic Venous Leg Ulcers, Irritation around Stomas, and Diaper Rash
Sucralfate gel is an effective treatment for many common skin conditions, including chronic venous leg ulcers, stoma irritation and diaper rash.
- hronic venous leg ulcers
Venous leg ulcers are common in elderly patients and can be difficult to treat. Sucralfate is designed to prevent or treat certain gastrointestinal disorders, but it also may be used to treat leg ulcers. One study revealed that patients who were treated with sucralfate gel experienced a significant improvement over the course of the study, and the ulcer size decreased along with the pain and inflammation. A 10 percent solution of sucralfate gel may help contract wounds and promote healing when applied as directed.
- Stoma irritation
Sucralfate has been found to be effective in the treatment of stoma irritation. It coats the damaged skin to protect it from contamination, and, by keeping the area clean and protected, helps promote healing.
- Erosive irritant diaper dermatitis
Some types of diaper rash can be extremely difficult to treat. The diaper area is particularly susceptible and is frequently exposed to contaminants, which can increase the risk of infections and other complications. Sucralfate gel may be recommended to treat stubborn cases of diaper rash, provide greater comfort to infants and promote healing of broken or damaged skin.
Low-dose naltrexone supports immune modulation, which can be particularly effective for inflammatory autoimmune disorders and oncogenic processes.

Non-surgical Treatment of Anal Fissure
Anal fissures are tears in the lining of the anus. They can occur on both men and women, young and healthy people and people of all ages. They can also accompany hemorrhoids. Anal fissures can be painful, particularly during bowel movements. While fissures do not cause more serious health problems, they can be quite uncomfortable. Home care is often sufficient to treat minor acute anal fissures. More severe fissures or chronic fissures, which refers to fissures that last more than 6 weeks and do not respond to home treatment, may require more advanced treatment methods.
One common treatment option for chronic anal fissures includes topical nifedipine. Nifedipine can be used alone or combined with botulinum toxin injections. Both treatment regimens have a high rate of success, few side effects and a low recurrence rate. Treating anal fissures with nifedipine, botulinum or nitroglycerin can reduce the need for surgery and reduce the risk of long-term effects that are often associated with surgery.
