Gentian Violet Antiseptic

For the external treatment of:

  • Macerated toe innerspaces
  • Abrasions
  • Minor cuts

Gentian violet is a chemical that's been used for literally hundreds of years. In foot care, it is applied to the skin between the toes when moisture creates fissures and white areas (maceration). We like it because it's very drying to the skin; it's also anti-microbial and anti-fungal. Maceration can be the result of diabetes or several other conditions. It leaves the skin open to bacterial invasion, which can allow infections.

Product Features

  • Gentian Violet is an antiseptic for external use on macerated (wet) innerspaces
  • Can be used to treat fungal infections of the skin
  • This is an excellent product to prevent infection on minor cuts and scrapes

How to Use Gentian Violet for Interdigital Space Maceration

Before starting, clean and dry the affected area. Use a q-tip as a single-use applicator to prevent cross contamination and to minimize unnecessary staining. Gloves are also recommended. Paint the medication in between the areas of the toes where skin is affected. It will stain the skin, an effect that will last for up to two months. Avoid contact with visible surfaces or clothing as stains may be difficult to remove. During this time when the staining is apparent, the skin is protected from potential infection. Apply to affected areas one time per month.
Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, rinse immediately for at least 15 minutes, and seek medical attention if irritation occurs. Avoid contact with healthy skin and keep exposure at the recommended maximum since damage from excessive dryness can occur. Seek advice from your podiatrist for this problem.
