Objective: To assess the efficacy of compound Bai Yu San (CBYS) as a new treatment option, in healing diabetic skin ulcer. Materials and Methods: A total of 64 diabetic patients with skin ulcer were enrolled and randomly assigned to experimental group (n = 33) and control group (n = 31). In the control group, normal saline (NS) was used to cleanse the wound. After debridement, the wound was dressed with modern materials. In the experimental group, the NS-cleansed wound was dressed with CBYS. The infection rate, healing rate, treatment cost, and patient satisfaction between the two groups were compared. Results: On the 35th day after treatment, the infection rate and healing rate showed no between-group difference (P > 0.05); the experimental group showed lower treatment cost and higher satisfaction than the control group (P < 0.05). Conclusion: As a new treatment option for diabetes-induced skin ulcer, CBYS can effectively control the infection, promote the healing, reduce treatment cost, and increase patient satisfaction. Dressing with CBYS can be clinically replicated in the treatment of diabetic skin ulcer.
