Medline Curad Petrolatum Gauze Dressing is an effective, non-adherent primary dressing that maintains a moist wound bed for autolytic healing. U.S.P. (United States Pharmacopeia) cotton gauze is evenly impregnated with U.S.P. white petrolatum to create a soothing, conforming dressing that would not stick to the wound site. It maintains moisture and helps prevent secondary dressing from sticking to wound/peri-wound skin to prevent trauma with dressing changes.
