Topical antimicrobial agents provide an opportunity to prevent the spread of bacterial burden beyond critical colonisation and local infection, aid in the swift and effective management of systemic infection, reduce excessive and prolonged use of antibiotic therapy for people living with chronic wounds [1, 2], and reduce the risk of developing bacterial resistance associated with the use of antibiotics. The role of topical antimicrobials is well established within the principles of wound bed… Expand
