: Of the 46 patients who were randomly allocated, 20 patients from the experimental group and 17 from the placebo control group completed the study. The patients, operators, and evaluators were all blinded. Patients applied the powder twice a day and completed a diary twice a day for 10 days. The diary was used to monitor the size of the lesions and pain levels (using a 10-cm visual analog scale).
