Step 4

Smooth the dressing over the wound removing the remaining protector material and ensure that the dressing is adhered all around the wound.


Dressing changes

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.
