A Labrador had a 6 cm2 moist eczema lesion on the cheek. The area was shaved, cleaned, dried, sprinkled with SertaSil and left uncovered. 4 hours later, maceration and spreading had stopped. 12 hours later, edges were showing clear signs of healing and the wound was dry. SertaSil was re-applied and left un-dressed. After additional 12 hours, SertaSil was added in a few places where it had fallen off. The wound was checked every 12 hours, but no further action was required. During the following days the crust started falling off in small pieces/flakes leaving completely healed skin underneath.
