How Does Amerigel Hydrogel Dressing Works?

Unique hydrating Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) base found in AmeriGel Hydrogel Wound Dressing has a zero evaporation rate. This allows the hydrogel to sustain moisture longer than the standard glycerin or saline-based hydrogels. PEG liquefies at body temperature for better migration across all wound surfaces. It addresses wound tunneling and undermines without the need for packing. Zinc works together with the hydrating base to prevent scabs from forming. Scabs can delay the healing process and lead to scarring.

What to buy with Amerigel Wound Dressing?


How to apply Amerigel Hydrogel Dressing?

The following are general guidelines and recommendations and do not take the place of proper medical care by a qualified provider.

Remove the Previous Dressing
  • Carefully remove the dressing/gauze that is covering the wound. If the gauze sticks to the wound, wet the dressing with Amerigel Wound Wash and try removing it again in 10 or 15 minutes. This will help soften the area that is stuck to the gauze and prevent the removal of the healthy tissue from the wound bed.

Cleansing the Wound
  • Place enough 2x2 or 4x4 gauze(s) to cover the entire wound bed and saturate it with Wound Wash. Pick up the gauze with fingers or tweezers and dab the wound for 1-2 minutes. Discard the gauze and then squirt the Wound Wash directly into the wound bed to rinse out any loose matter. Blot the wound dry with a clean piece of gauze. The wound is now cleansed and ready for application of AmeriGel Hydrogel Wound Dressing.

Applying Amerigel Hydrogel Wound Dressing
  • After the wound has been cleansed, apply a thin coat of AmeriGel Hydrogel Wound Dressing to the wound and surrounding skin, about one-half inch beyond the wound.

Dressing the Wound
  • Moisten a gauze (2x2, 4x4, etc.) with Amerigel Wound Wash. It should be similar in dampness to a washcloth that user would wash the face with, not dripping wet, but not wrung dry. Place this dampened gauze over the wound that has just been coated with AmeriGel Hydrogel Wound Dressing. Next, place a dry piece of gauze on top of the damp one. This will help provide a moist environment for the wound and additional gauze to absorb any drainage. Secure into place with tape or roll gauze.

Hydrogel Dressing Ingredients

  • AmeriGelWound Dressing is classified by the FDA as a sterile antimicrobial hydrogel wound filler. The primary ingredient, Oakin (Oak Extract) is bactericidal (In vitro) and provides the antimicrobial, antifungal and aggressive autolytic debriding properties. Other ingrediants include Meadowsweet extract, Polyethylene Glycol 400, Polyethylene Glycol 3350, Water, Zinc Acetate

Precautions to take while using Amerigel Wound Dressing

  • For external use only.
  • Avoid contact with the eyes.
  • Do not use on children under 2 years of age without consulting a physician.


Dosage and Administration
Apply a thin layer to cover the wound bed and overlap onto the periwound skin. Cover with a moist saline gauze or a secondary dressing of choice.
