Prontosan can be used to clean and treat both chronic and acute wounds.
The exposure time of a wound irrigation solution recommended by the manufacturer is not comparable to that of a disinfectant. Nevertheless, some information can be given on the application and prior soaking or rinsing of the wound. Irrigation is for example recommended for dirty, lightly exuding wounds. Heavily exuding, chronic and infected wounds on the other hand, should be soaked for 10 - 15 minutes prior to mechanical cleansing.
Scientific studies prove the antimicrobial effect of Prontosan® (López-Rojas et al. In vitro activity of a polyhexanide–betaine solution against high-risk clones of multidrug-resistant nosocomial pathogens. Enferm Infecc Microbiol Clin. 2016. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0213005X16000781; Accessed 13.05.2020). In addition, the tolerability of the wound irrigation solution was confirmed in a comparative study (Bellingeri et al. Effect of a wound cleansing solution on wound bed preparation and inflammation in chronic Wounds: a single-blind RCT. J Wound Care 2016; 25: 3, 160-168. www.bbraun.com/en/products/b/prontosan-wound-irrigationsolution.html).
