Ointments and Topicals

After the blister is drained, an ointment should be applied to reduce friction, soften crusting to maintain a moist healing environment, and act as a barrier to protect the wound. As long as the blister or erosion (open blister/sore) is not infected, personal preference will determine which ointment is most suitable.

Some products work better for some people more than others. Many people with EB report the best results when they rotate products; when one seems to stop being effective, they switch to another. Personal preference will determine which ointments you feel work best and which you choose to use on a given day.
