Methylene Blue can be used for cattle (Methylene Blue untuk sapi) for the treatment of Lumpy Skin Disease. Methylene Blue (MB) is a broad-spectrum antiviral drug with well-known antiviral activity against a wide range of viruses. Methylene Blue has recently been shown to be extremely efficient in lowering the viral load of SARS-COV2.
Through its multi-mechanism antiviral action, MB will aid in the treatment of Lumpy Skin disease by lowering the viral load in infected cattle until the body triggers natural immune response. This helps to prevent any damaging excessive immune response, protecting from further complications like multiple organ damage.
