Science has advanced so much that we are shocked sometimes. The wounds take a lot to time to heal depending on what degree are they? Scientists have been working on making things easy and painless. Fish skin is being used as a bandage for wounds. It brings new hope to the treatment.
The FDA had approved to use the of fish skin products in cosmetic surgery. In Brazil, it was used to treat burns on human skin. The healing process was faster and painless. Pain killers weren’t required as such. Some vets have been using it to heal animals such as ponies, lions, and bears. When done on donkeys it showed amazing results by accelerating the healing process.
According to Odorico de Morais, a professor at Ceara University, “The use of tilapia skin on burns is unprecedented. The fish skin is usually thrown away, so we are using this product to convert it into something of social benefit.”
The skin of the particular skin is applied directly to the burnt area and covered without any cream. The bandage is removed after 10 days. When it gets dried and loosened, it can be peeled away.
