Why protect wounds?
Bacteria: If left uncovered, bacteria have the potential to enter into the wound, which could possibly cause infections and delay healing
A good wound care routine for optimal healing
Which plaster is right for me?
Help wounds to heal better
Make sure that the wound is consistently protected. Change your plaster every day, unless instructed to do otherwise by a doctor. If it falls off, apply another right away.
Leave the wound alone. If there is a scab, do not touch it and certainly don’t attempt to remove it. Try to reduce friction around the area if at all possible and wear loose clothing that doesn’t put pressure on the wound.
Keep the wound away from UV rays. Exposure can cause discolouration of the skin and skin is more likely to scar.
Always see a doctor if the wound is deep, bleeds heavily or shows signs of infection like reddening, swelling or warmth.
