Abstract

Abstract. A new animal model was used to study the effect of topical agents on wound healing. A weak‐ (hydrocortisone cream 1%) and medium‐strength (fluocino‐lone acetonide ointment 0.025%) steroid and their vehicles were applied to full‐thickness skin wounds placed on the backs of female Syrian hamsters. Wound healing was significantly retarded by both steroids when compared to their vehicles. Fluocinolone had a greater inhibitory effect than hydrocortisone. 1983 American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, Inc.
