Overview

Faulding WoundCare+ for everyday wounds

Our pharmacy only range provides advanced wound care technology by applying moist wound healing principles which work to ensure faster healing & minimise scarring.

What are Cuts + Lacerations?

A cut refers to a wound where the skin is just separated, without any dirt or foreign object remaining in the wound, typically caused by a sharp object such as a knife or piece of broken glass and where none of the skin is missing.

How to treat Cuts + Lacerations?

Most bleeding can be stopped with direct pressure and time. Cleaning with a gentle soap and water or with Prontosan will help reduce the chance of bacterial infection. Apply the adhesive suture strips to close wound edges and cover with a polyurethane film dressing to avoid bacterial contamination.

Directions

1.Wash hands before and after applying the sutures.
2.Clean the wound area with gauze and clean water or Prontosan and dry gently.
3. Wait for the wound to stop bleeding.
4. Apply one strip without tension, starting in the middle; pull in skin edges as close as possible.
5. Use the other strips to close the wound if necessary.
6. Cover the wound and the strips with the cover film dressing.

To apply the cover film dressing

1. Remove the printed release paper and place over the sutured wound area.
2. Peel away the two side tabs.
3. Remove the top flaps following the arrows.

The dressing should be left in place until the cut is closed.

Warnings

Do not use on an infected wound unless recommended by a physician. If the wound bleeds or is swollen or painful within 7 days, seek medical advice. People with Diabetes should consult a physician before using the dressing. If you notice signs of infection on the wound site such as pain, redness, swelling or heat, you should seek medical advice.
