Instructions for Use:

Step 1.
Select the appropriate dressing size.

Step 2.
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 sound.

Step 3.
Start to remove the protector material from Allevyn Gentle Border Dressing and anchor the adhesive side of the dressing to the skin.

Step 4.
Smooth the dressing over the wound removing the remaining protector material and ensure 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 undisturbed for up to 7 days or until exudate is visible and approaches to within 5/8" of the edge of the dressing, whichever is sooner.

-Do not use Allevyn Gentle Border Dressing with oxidizing agents such as hypochlorite solutions (e.g. EUSOL) or hydrogen peroxide, as these can break down the absorbent polyurethane component of the dressing.
-If reddening or sensitization occur discontinue use.
