In the treatment and prevention of various inflammations, as well as with pustular diseases, furatsilin is used in the form of a solution. The solution is stored in the refrigerator in a closed container for no more than a day, so we recommend diluting it into 1-2 doses. Before use, the solution should be heated in a water bath or a little hot water should be added to it.
How to prepare a solution furatsilina
- It is necessary to take one tablet of furatsilina and knead it to the state of powder.
- Put the powder in a glass and pour 100 ml. water. Water should be distilled or boiled and cooled to 40 degrees.
- Stir until complete dissolution of the powder. It may take about an hour.
If for any reason the powder does not completely dissolve, we recommend filtering the solution before using it through a gauze flap to avoid damage to the mucous membrane.

- reduces the time of treatment of certain diseases, such as rhinitis, sinusitis and others.
It is important to know that the concentration of the salt solution should be less than 10%, otherwise the use of such a solution may cause pain and destruction of the capillaries.Apply compresses and bandages must be hot (70 degrees).

- as an oxidizing agent in pyrotechnics;
- for tattoo removal.
How to prepare a solution of potassium permanganate
To do this, take a glass dish, water and manganese powder. To prepare 1 liter of solution, we need 50 grams of potassium permanganate and 950 grams of warm boiled water. Pour the water into a glass container, pour potassium permanganate into it and mix until completely dissolved.
Do not use various enameled pans and aluminum utensils for the preparation of potassium permanganate solution, as potassium permanganate paints these surfaces.
