Sanyrene Oil for Pressure Sores from Bipap

Posted by jackieinsg @jackieinsg, May 31 11:23am

Hi i understand that Sanyrene oil is for the treatment of pressure sore.
However, it is too costly in the retail pharmacy and i have source for a more cheaper option in the online platform.
I have a question over here.
The Sanyrene Oil in the online platform is in Chinese packaging (cheaper) whereas the one that i bought in the retail pharmacy is in English packaging (costly).

May i clarify which product is authentic?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Skin Health group.

I believe that it was developed in Germany.
I thought it was more of a preventive than a cure after the skin opened. Once the sore opened I had better luck keeping the decubitus dry and the weight off it.
I wouldn't trust anything from China.
Did you use it on an open sore? If so, how did it work?
Take care,
Jake

Hi Leonard, thank you for the reply. Yes it is more of a preventive than a cure. No i did not use it on an open sore.
This oil is to apply before the sore appears. I would apply every night on my face to prevent tear marks and pressure sore because i am a Bipap user and have to wear a full face mask for almost 8 to 12 hours.
I'd tried using the one from China & i find that the smell isn't as strong as the one i bought in the retail pharmacy. I think i will buy the retail pharmacy one.

Thank you very much.

Hi Jackie,
I also added your question to the Sleep Health group (https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/sleep-health/) so that other Bipap users can join the discussion.

Medications in the US are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to ensure they are safe and effective. The FDA's oversight includes American medicines or their active ingredients that are manufactured in other countries. These production facilities are regulated and inspected by the FDA. They are traced throughout production and distribution so you can be sure the medicine you get from your pharmacist have a reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness. FDA ensures labels on medications direct patients on when and how it can be used and things to watch out for.

Foreign manufacturing facilities may or may not have the same oversight and regulation of their medications or products.

Regarding Sanyrene, I spoke with a Mayo Clinic phamacist and she verified that Sanyrene contains hyperoxygenated fatty acids and perfume. She also advises:

– "It should not be applied to broken skin. I have not seen high quality evidence that hyperoxygenated fatty acids in general or Sanyrene in particular further reduce the risk of pressure ulcers.

Skin that is overly warm, moist or overly dry such that there may be scaling or cracking increase risk so it’s important to maintain dry and moderate temperature airflow. Regular skin assessment and care are also important aspects of prevention.

A barrier liner made of cotton or moleskin that can reduce moisture and help keep skin dry may improve skin condition. Sometimes irritation is caused by headgear which is too tight. You want just enough tension to create a seal. You could also try a mask made of different materials. Any nasal lubricant used to reduce skin irritation with Bipap and should be petroleum-free to maintain mask integrity."

@jackieinsg Has your skin improved sinceusing the Sanyrene? Have you tried barrier liners?

Perhaps the manufacturers of the equipment have recommendations for barrier products? There are oils that can even degrade silicon and plastics, yet alone plain old rubber, and the manufacturers would know what's safe for the materials they use.

I would caution anyone about ordering things online that are ingested or breathed or can affect health in any way, unless one can verify the quality AND the distribution channel. I've stopped buying anything in that category through Amazon after, twice, received fakes of products that I've used and know the scent, taste or texture of so can recognize the real thing.

The Netflix series on dangerous products had one whole hour-long episode on the tsunami of fraudulant goods being sold on Amazon. It's easy to make near-perfect packaging and labels. A client of the acupuncturist I go to got poisoned (not fatally) from some ma huang he found on Amazon that was a lower price than he'd been paying. Doctors couldn't identify the stuff he'd been sold but his liver and kidneys knew it wasn't good for him and he had a long slow recovery.

I read the reviews on Amazon but tend to buy products directly from the manufacturer or a long-established vendor that has control over its supply line. Ditto for only using national pharmacies that can block-chain their supply line.

Hi Colleen, thanks for the information. Yes my skin has greatly improved when i apply the Sanyrene oil daily.
In addition, i am also using facial tissue to act as a barrier between my face and the Bipap mask.
I am using Airfit F20 full face mask and will always have redness all over the nose bridge and the side of the mouth.
I have to pull the headgear tight because i have NG Tube which causes leakage.
Do you have other types of full face Bipap mask to recommend?
Thank you very much.
