The ALLEVYN Gentle Border range has been designed for people with particularly sensitive or fragile skin. These dressings have a Gentle silicone gel adhesive which minimises trauma to the wound at dressing change.
Prepare and clean the skin surrounding the wound area by removing excess moisture. Any excess hair should be clipped to ensure close approximation to the wound. Start to remove the protector material from the dressing and anchor the adhesive side of the dressing to the skin. Smooth the dressing over the wound removing the remaining protector material and ensure that the dressing is adhered all around the wound.
