Furacillin - Pharmacology:
Furacillin is a topical antibacterial agent indicated as an adjunctive therapy for second and third degree burns when resistance to other agents is a real or potential problem. Furacillin is also indicated in skin grafting when bacterial contamination may cause graft rejection or donor site infection, especially in hospitals with a history of resistant bacteria.
Furacillin for patients
- Renal function impairment: polyethylene glycols in the base of the topical solution and the soluble dressing may be absorbed through denuded skin and may not be excreted normally, which may lead to increased blood urea nitrogen (BUN), anion gap, and metabolic acidosis.
- Sensitivity to nitrofurazone or other components of the formulation.
