Abstract:  Sucralfate was originally marketed for the prevention and accelerated healing of duodenal ulcers. Physicians also have used sucralfate in the treatment of ulcers and erosions in the mouth, esophagus, and stomach, although its effectiveness in these areas has never been clearly proven. This article discusses the use and effectiveness of sucralfate in the treatment of external wounds. The author provides case reports as support for sucralfate’s success in treating wounds and provides formulations for the unconventional use of this drug. The author has found sucralfate to be relatively inexpensive and inert when compared to other ingredients, and has found sucralfate to be very versatile and capable of healing almost any wound.
