Learning Objectives:

  1. Topical antibiotics in post-procedural wound care
  2. Allergy concerns in topical wound care

Summary Description:
Dermatologists perform >25 M in-office surgical procedures annually. Infection rates after in-office dermatologic procedures range from 0.2% to 2.5%. Additionally reported rates of allergic contact dermatitis to antibiotics ointments are higher than the observed risk of infection. This presentation will review studies that show no difference in infection rates between those treated with topical antibiotics and those treated with petrolatum-based ointments, with a focus on avoiding allergic contact dermatitis for post-surgical wound care.
