Wound Care

Wound Care

  • Keep the wound dry*
  • Do not rub, scratch, or touch/pick at the wound or may become loose before the wound is fully ready*
  • Baths or showers are permitted with the direction of your doctor. After bathing or showering, gently pat the wound with a soft towel or linen until it is dry *
  • Do not submerse (soak) or scrub the wound; do not partake in aquatic activities where submersion may take place, until the adhesive film has fallen off naturally*
  • Do not expose to direct sunlight and do not use tanning booths or lamps*
  • Do not apply any products to your wound, including medicinal liquids or ointments while the application is still in use. It could compromise the integrity of the film before the wound has fully healed*
