ACCUZYME (papain and urea) Ointment is generally well-tolerated and non-irritating. A transient "burning" sensation may be experienced by a small percentage of patients upon applying ACCUZYME (papain and urea) Ointment. Occasionally, the profuse exudate from enzymatic digestion may irritate the skin. In such cases, more frequent dressing changes will alleviate discomfort until exudate decreases.

Cleanse the wound with ALLCLENZ® Wound Cleanser or saline. Avoid cleansing with hydrogen peroxide solution as it may inactivate the papain. Apply ACCUZYME (papain and urea) directly to the wound, cover with appropriate dressing, secure into place. Daily or twice daily applications are preferred. Irrigate the wound at each redressing to remove any accumulation of liquefied necrotic material. NOTE: Papain may also be inactivated by the salts of heavy metals such as lead, silver and mercury. Contact with medications containing these metals should be avoided.
