Abstract:  When compounded with synergistic ingredients, many pathogenicidal or anti-inflammatory drugs are particularly effective in resolving dermal or mucosal wounds that have proven refractory to treatment with standardized medications. In a customized preparation, such agents offer therapy that can be easily revised to repair injured tissues, minimize discomfort, and reduce morbidity. In this article, profiles of metronidazole, misoprostol, and phenytoin (drugs with often underappreciated wound-healing effects) are presented, and formulations designed to restore tissue integrity are provided for easy reference.
