RE: [Histonet] Formalin on skin

From:Kemlo Rogerson

Interestingly fish medication contains malachite green and formalin to cure
ulcers and to kill parasites; though oddly I think they are caused by the
same thing. Fish harbor aeromonas and under extremes succumb to ulcers; on
recovery invariably flagellated protozoa infest the wound and keep it
'open', the fish waterlogs.

Formalin kills these parasites but not as well as metronidazole; though
getting the medicine can be embarrassing. Have I gone off piste?
