Instructions for Use

How to use ALLEVYN LIFE dressings

  1. Wash your hands before and after dealing with your wound. Gently clean the wound and surrounding skin, and dry thoroughly. Remove any excess hair close to the wound.
  2. Remove the dressing from the packaging and peel back the protective layers from the centre – but not completely. Place the dressing on the wound, ensuring it is completely covered by the absorbent pad.
  3. Remove the remaining protective liners and smooth the dressing over the wound and surrounding tissue (but do not stretch the dressing), and pat it down gently.
