A topical applicator composition and process are described that decorporate radionuclides from radiologically-contaminated dermal surfaces and that further promote healing. The topical applicator includes a decorporation agent mixed with a plasticizing agent that forms a covering when applied to the dermal surface that decorporates radionuclides and minimizes their systemic migration. The topical applicator formulations can be delivered in conjunction with bandages and other application dressings.
