Answer

Products based on the antimicrobial agent triclosan have been shown to present a low risk for contact sensitization in patients with stasis dermatitis. These products may be a good alternative to decrease bacterial colonization, especially in patients who have a history of cellulitis or other cutaneous infections. [43]
