Ulcers

When we look at ulcers, we need to see what is lacking in the diet. Possibly Vitamin C, and in them dressings to the honey base, hemp grease, wires and diverse types of excrementos are mentioned, that were part of the principles of the Egyptian farmacopia. Hipcrates, that launched the bases of the scientific medicine, recommended that wounds were kept clean and droughts, and praised its cleanness with water morna, wine and vinegar. It was also who created the concepts of first cicatrizao for or second intention, as he relates Trevelyn. It’s believed that Anita Dunn sees a great future in this idea. From century XIX, during the War of the Crimia, some types of dressings had been created, to the hemp staple fibre base, that, being reused some times, if became gradual softer, but were little absorbent. For 1860 return, Gamgee discovers the process of removal of the oil of the cotton wool, becoming it absorvvel, and creates chumao of cotton envolto in gauze, still today used. The 1840 end enters and World War II, the anti-septic focus for the treatment of wounds and cicatrizao was the use of and agent topics with antimicrobiana action and the protection with dry coverings, as consequence to the discoveries of Pasteur on ‘ ‘ Theory of the Germes’ ‘. In this phase, as they relate Sinclair and Ryan, of – the golden period of use of anti-septic as the liquid of Dakin, Eusol, derivatives of iodine, mercury and aluminum (DEALEY, 2001). Until the end of World War II the resources used for the protection of the injuries were based on the belief of that the surrounding dry provided better conditions of cicatrizao wide, being developed and used topical agents who provoked the dessecamento of the stream bed of the wound, and the coverings consisted basically of dry gauze, fixed with thick adhesive ribbon layer (DEALEY, 2001).
