Indications for use of medical adhesive BF6
Glue BF-6 medical is used in the following cases:
- for treating wounds and cuts;
- for burns of varying degrees;
- to cover the root of the tooth in surgical dentistry.
Clay got its name for its dense structure, thanks to which a specific film is created on the surface of the wound that prevents the penetration of bacteria.
Composition and properties
The preparation contains alcohol solution of phenol-formaldehyde resin, rosin, plasticizer. Medical adhesive exhibits antiseptic and wound healing properties. It promotes the speedy healing of small wounds, cuts and cracks by forming a thin insulating film on the surface.
The film is very flexible and flexible. It does not shift when the skin moves and remains stable before exposure to chemicals.
The drug acts on the wound locally, not absorbed and not penetrating into the general circulation. This property makes the drug safe for use in the presence of chronic diseases of internal organs and systems.
How to use
Despite the fact that medical adhesive is quite easy to use, there are some features in its use, by observing that you can achieve maximum efficiency in the treatment of wounds and cuts.
Before putting glue on the place of a wound, it is carefully cleared and disinfected. With the help of washes with cool water and the treatment of hydrogen peroxide, the wound is prepared. In the presence of bleeding, you need to wait for it to stop completely, putting a tampon with peroxide.
Next, the wound is well dried. You can use a hair dryer or wait until the excess liquid evaporates on its own. Glue is applied with a thin layer, capturing not only the area of the wound, but also protruding 2-3 cm beyond its limits, which will ensure the best effect.
After a few minutes, a dense film is formed that does not deform when moving. In case of wetting, the glue is applied in one more layer, allowing it to dry well.
The film lasts 3-5 days, which is quite enough for the wound to become less deep, and new epithelial cells form on its surface. With a weak regeneration process, the old film is gently soaked in water and removed. The wound is treated with an antiseptic again, after which medical glue is applied.
The drug contains phenol-formaldehyde, which can provoke an allergic reaction. It is manifested by symptoms such as:
- severe itching of the wound under the film;
- redness of the wound and the skin around it;
- the appearance of a small rash spreading throughout the body;
- swelling of the mucous membranes;
- difficulty breathing.
If such symptoms are detected, it is necessary to clean the wound from glue as fast as possible by rinsing it with warm water. Clinical manifestations of an allergic reaction are eliminated with the help of antihistaminic drugs: Fenistil, Diazolin, Suprastin. In the absence of the effectiveness of these drugs and the rapid deterioration of the general condition, it is necessary to use drugs from the group of corticosteroids that can block the development of allergies.
Instructions for use of medical glue indicates that its use is prohibited in the presence of individual intolerance to components and children up to 1 year.
In the presence of a polyvalent drug allergy in history, before using the drug, you should consult with your doctor and first make a test sample. To do this, a pea glue, the size of a match head, is applied to a healthy area of skin and the reaction is monitored. Lack of itching, swelling and rash is the reason for allowing the use of the drug.
Glue has such positive qualities as:
- Low price and availability for each patient.
- High efficiency.
- Practically does not cause adverse reactions.
Medical glue does not heal wounds and is not a medicine by nature. Formaldehyde in its composition is the strongest preservative that helps prevent bacteria from entering the wound. The high efficacy of the drug due to the natural processes of regeneration of the skin, which is accelerated in the absence of exposure to external stimuli.
The drug has more negative sides, therefore the remedy is little known to a wide range of consumers. It contains a preservative, which can accumulate in the body and provoke the development of a mass of pathological processes.
The glue is packaged in a metal tube, which is inconvenient to open. Because of the thick consistency, it is necessary to adjust the efforts to squeeze it out, after which the glue spontaneously flows out of the tube, even with the lid closed. This provokes bonding of the lid and the metal cone, which makes it difficult to further use of the drug.
At increased humidity or contact with water, the film is quickly soaked, and the glue acquires its original shape. When applying a new layer of adhesion decreases.
In the case of mechanical impact on the wound, the film moves away with the scab, which is quite painful. Therefore, if necessary, treatment of wounds, the film is better to soften with water.
Purulent wounds under the film can become inflamed, therefore glue should be applied several times a day, changing the layer each time. Otherwise, the inflammatory process is exacerbated, and complex healing is used for wound healing.
In the presence of individual intolerance, allergic reactions can develop, so if you need to use this drug, you should first consult with a specialist.
