List of ingredients

Usage instructions
1. Cleanse the wound in accordance with normal procedures.
2. Select the appropriate dressing size.
3. 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 wound.
4. Start to remove the protector material from the dressing and anchor the adhesive side of the dressing to the skin.
5. Smooth the dressing over the wound removing the remaining protector material and ensure that the dressing is adhered all around the wound.
6. ALLEVYN Gentle Border can be cut and an aseptic technique should be used with cutting the dressing. Ensure any exposed foam areas are covered with an appropriate film dressing taking care not to cover the entire dressing.

Dressing should be changed if it gets dirty or loses its adhesion bond. Please follow the manufacturer’s Instructions for Use and change the dressing under doctor’s guidance. 

Do not use ALLEVYN Gentle Border dressings with oxidising agents such as hypochlorite solutions (eg. EUSOL) or hydrogen peroxide, as these can break down the absorbent polyurethane component of the dressing. If reddening or sensitisation occur discontinue use.
