Instructions for Use
Select appropriate dressing size.
Prepare and clean the skin surrounding the wound area by removing excess moisture. Any excess hair should be clipped to ensure close approximation to the wound.
Start to remove the protector material from Allevyn Gentle Border and anchor the adhesive side of the dressing to the skin.
Smooth the dressing over the wound removing the remaining protector material and ensure that the dressing is adhered all around the wound.
During the early stages of wound management Allevyn Gentle Border dressings should be inspected frequently. Where the product is used on infected wounds the infection should be inspected and treated as per local clinical protocol. Dressings can be left in place for up to 7 days depending on the condition of the wound and the surrounding skin or until exudate is visible and approaches to within 5/8" of the edge of the dressing, whichever is sooner.

It is always important to sanitize your hands prior to dressing any wound. Sani hands antimicrobial hand wipes are pre-moistened hand wipes that cleanse and sanitize hands when soap and water are not available.

Many of our customers have reported excellent results using Puracyn OTC (formerly named Microcyn OTC). Puracyn OTC is an innovative new approach to wound care promoting faster healing time. It is a non-irritating, pH-balanced wound cleanser for minor cuts, burns, irritations, and superficial abrasions of the skin.
After the wound has closed, proven scar treatments such as Cica-Care, Mepiform, or Kelo-Cote will improve the appearance of scars and prevent abnormal or excessive scar formation. Always consult your physician or wound care specialist before starting any wound care treatment program.
