Applying DuoDERM Dressing:

  • Warm the DuoDERM dressing between your hands.
  • Remove the "top" white release paper, being careful to minimize finger contact with the adhesive surface.
  • Hold the adhesive side of the dressing over the wound.
  • Align the dressing with the center of the wound.
  • Gently apply the center part of the dressing.
  • Remove the "bottom" white release paper while rolling the dressing in place - but do not stretch it.
  • Repeat the above procedure on the other side and remove the clear release paper.
  • Gently mold the dressing into place for 30-60 seconds.

Removing DuoDERM Dressing:

  • Gently lift one corner of the DuoDERM thin dressing.
  • Roll it away from the wound while holding the skin away.
  • Gently lift the other corners and pull upwards until the dressing completely peels off.


  • Should not be used on individuals who are sensitive to or have had an allergic reaction to the dressing or its components.
