Abstract:

The Ficus racemosa plant is a member of the Moraceae family. It is used to treat a variety of illnesses, such as diabetes, liver problems, diarrhoea, inflammatory ailments, haemorrhoids, respiratory, and urinary illnesses. Pharmacological research on F. racemosa has examined its potential for antidiabetic, antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, antitussive, hepatoprotective, and antibacterial effects. In this paper, an effort was undertaken to examine the phytochemical components and antibacterial effects of the ethanolic extract on bacteria that cause wounds. The gel made from an ethanolic extract of Ficus racemosa works best against S. aureus, somewhat against E. coli, and least well against Klebsiella spp. That unmistakably demonstrated Ficus racemosa has antibacterial effect against wound microorganisms. Thus, we draw the conclusion that Ficus racemosa offers additional herbal treatments for wound care.
