maintain and restore skin viability and assist the ointment to adhere to
the skin surface to form an effective antimicrobial barrier.

prevent re-infestation. Can be used in conjunction with
F10 Germicidal Wound Spray with Insecticide. See our fly-strike page for more information on using F10 products as a preventative.
