Various topical anti-microbial agents are used for lacerated wounds. The reports on the efficacy of these agents in healing the wounds are not comprehensive. This study reviews the results of seven topical antimicrobial agents applied under sterile occlusive dressing of superficial lacerated wounds in children. All the patients were given P.O. amplicillin for five days. Healing rate of 100% was achieved with framycetin, gention violet paint, mercurochrome paint and povidone iodine with 4-6 days of treatment; whereas only 56.25%, 66.66% and 54.55% wound healing were observed with nitrofurazone, polymixin + neomycin + bacitracin and silver sulphadiazine respectively. The nonheating wounds in the latter group when subjected to an application of the agents that showed 100% healing, heated in another 5-6 days.
