Taking into consideration the germicide properties of the ozonized
sunflower oil (OLEOZON), it was decided to make an investigation
in 80 children between 1 and 14 year old, with the main objective
of evaluating the effectiveness of the OLEOZON in primary
pyoderma, comparing this with Gentamycin cream. The investigation
was carried out in areas of health of the general Teaching
Hospital "Comandante Pinares ", San Cristobal , Pinar del Rio ,
lasting 6 months. Patients were randomly assigned to both group of
treatment; experimental (using OLEOZON) and control (using
Gentamyicin) .To all patients bacteriological studies were done,
at the beginning and after 15 days of treatment. The results
demonstrated that the most frequent isolated germ was the
Streptococcus haemolytic of group A. Healing effectiveness after
15 days of treatment, was 68 % for the OLEOZON and 28 % in those
patients where Gentamycin was used. No side effect were observed.
