Allevyn AG Adhesive Silver Barrier Dressing reduces the risk of excess fluid at the wound site. Excess wound fluid is transpired away more quickly. It prevents healing tissue from growing into the dressing, minimizes pain on removal, and maintains a moist wound interface. This allevyn foam dressing promotes rapid wound closure, reduces the risk of maceration, and provides an effective barrier to bacteria penetration.

Allevyn AG Adhesive Dressing Highlights:

  • Optimal exudate management.
  • Breathable top film.
  • Foam core.
  • Non-adherent wound contact layer.
  • Profiled edges.
  • Waterproof.

How to use Allevyn AG Barrier Dressing?

Step 1:

  • Select an appropriate size dressing 
  • Prepare and clean the skin around the wound 
  • Skin prep protective wipes may be used to protect fragile skin 
  • Peel back the protector papers and anchor the dressing over the wound 
  • Smooth the dressing into place, ensuring that the edges of the dressing are not wrinkled

Step 2

  • During the early stages of treatment, dressings should be inspected frequently; dressings can be left in place until exudate can be seen through the outer waterproof film layer and approaches 3/4" from the edge of the dressing

Step 3

  • To remove, lift one corner of the dressing and lift it gently away from the wound


  • For external use only
  • It is not compatible with oxidizing agents or hydrogen peroxide, as these can break down the absorbent polyurethane component of the dressing
  • Dressings are not intended to provide treatment for infected wounds
  • Allevyn dressing may be used on infected wounds being managed in accordance with institutional clinical protocols for infection abatement as an adjunct to the standard treatment regimen to provide a barrier to bacterial penetration
  • May not be compatible with topical antimicrobials
  • In common with all adhesive products, some cases of irritation and/or maceration of the skin surrounding the wound may be observed
  • It should be noted that inappropriate use or too frequent dressing changes, particularly on patients with fragile skin may result in skin stripping
  • Avoid contact with electrodes or conductive gels during electronic measurements e.g. EEG and ECG
  • When used on a patient during MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) examination some warming may be experienced
  • Allevyn adhesive foam dressing is not compatible with oil-based products such as petrolatum
  • Not suitable for use on cavity wounds but may be used over cavity wounds as a secondary dressing
  • As with all products containing silver sulfadiazine the following precautions should be noted, especially when covering a large surface area with the dressing
  • Use caution in patients with significant hepatic or renal impairment
  • Use caution in individuals known to have glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency
  • Effects of systemically administered drugs may be altered
  • This can especially apply to oral hypoglycaemic agents and to phenytoin
  • In the case of these drugs, it is recommended that blood levels should be monitored as their effect can be potentiated
