Soft, Cushioned, Gauze Pads and Dressings in All Sizes
Gauze pads do more than just keep out dirt and bacteria. Their soft cushiony surface helps to protect a wound against further injury. Special gauze pads are available that use exclusive technology to seamlessly soak up blood and moisture and whisk it away from the wound so that it stays drier and more comfortable.
Pads made with sterile, non-stick material are designed to detach easily when you take them off for ouchless dressing changes. One of the basics of wound care is to keep a wound clean and as free of bacteria as possible.
Medicated, anti-bacterial pads make it easier by building an antiseptic right into the pad.
If you need to keep your wound dry, you may find it difficult to take bath or shower. Waterproof gauze pads hold up even when you expose them to water. Choose from transparent dressings and cushioned pads made with thin, breathable material that lets your skin "breathe." These dressings are ideal for delicate or sensitive skin and in situations where you don't want a wound dressing to be too obvious.
Silicone foam dressings have a soft, silicone layer built into the dressing. This layer adheres to the skin without sticking to the wound while maintaining a moist environment that's optimal for healing. Dressing changes are easier and less irritating to the wounded area with a silicone foam dressing.
