What to buy with Silver Dressing

Allevyn Ag Gentle Border Silver Dressing Application

  • Where required, cleanse the wound in accordance with normal procedures.

  • Start to remove the protector material from ALLEVYN Ag Gentle Border and anchor the dressing.
  • Smooth the allevyn dressing over the wound, removing the remaining protector material and ensure that the dressing is adhered all around the wound.
  • ALLEVYN Ag Gentle Border can be cut, especially to dress heels, elbows and other awkward areas. Always use aseptic technique when cutting the dressing.
